Cross step sit ups with a power step is a basketball drill designed to develop agility and explosiveness while dribbling the basketball. To begin, lay down on the floor and complete a sit up while crossing one leg over the other as you rise up. Maintain contact with the ground through your sole and be sure to keep your back flat throughout the movement. Once you cross, turn your body into a runner’s pose and make a powerful stride forward maintaining fluidity in the movement. As you accelerate down the basketball court for five to ten yards, get as many reps in as possible while switching sides. This drill assists with basketball conditioning providing an effective way to build strength and coordination on-court.
