We are super excited to partner up with 4x WNBA Champion Lindsay Whalen to provide our #DrDishFam with some awesome drills/workouts to help level up their game!
Lindsay has collected multiple honors and championships in the WNBA and U.S. National team. She has played with the Connecticut Sun and Minnesota Lynx. She has been named All-WNBA 5 times and finished her career contributing to over 300 victories. In addition, she won 2 Olympic Gold Medals in 2012 and 2016. Be sure to stay tuned for all of the great drills to come from Lindsay!
Our first drill from Lindsay incorporates a lot of conditioning and rep shooting to simulate game fatigue and work on mental toughness! Lindsay implements this drill using the Dr. Dish CT machine.
This workout will have players shooting off the move in 3 different areas. The goal is to score 11 points from each area.
Baseline to Elbow
Elbow to Elbow
Opposite Side Baseline to Elbow
Be sure to check out the video below to see the drill in action!
11 Game Drill
The drill starts with players 15 feet out from the baseline and catching and shooting the pass from the Dish machine.
Next, players are hustling over to the same side elbow to catch and shoot off the move.
Players will continue to go back and forth shooting off the move from the baseline to the elbow.
Each make is plus 1 and each miss is minus 1.
The player continues moving and shooting from the baseline to the elbow until players have a score of plus 11.
Players will repeat these same steps moving and shooting from two other locations: elbow to elbow and opposite side baseline to elbow.
This drill challenges players mentally by simulating the pressure/fatigue they would feel during a game. Working on this drill will help prepare players to knock down shots off the move in games when it matters the most.
