Improve Your Shooting and Conditioning With The Hornacek Shooting Drill
This is a drill given to me by Raja Bell, then of the Utah Jazz. He learned it from Jeff Hornacek, one of the best shooters in the history of the NBA. We used it when Raja was recovering from a knee injury and we had to get him ready to play.
It provides high repetitions, and when done properly, great conditioning in a very short period of time.
All sets are 10 shots. 2 sets are shot using that number of spots.
Starting with 7 spots, shooter starts in the right corner and runs from spot to spot and takes a shot from each spot. Player attempts 10 shots.
Shooter takes 2 foul shots.
Shooter then takes 1 shot from each spot, now starting from the left corner from the same spots. Player attempts 10 shots.
Shooter runs 2 sprints and then takes 2 foul shots.
Shooter repeats the process using 6 spots.
Shooter repeats the process using 5 spots.
Shooter repeats the process using 4 spots.
Shooter repeats the process using 3 spots.
When the drill is done, player has taken 100 shots, 20 foul shots and has run 10 sprints, in addition to running from spot to spot.
