Basketball Shooting Drills: Hammer Shooting With Dr. Dish

Basketball Shooting Drills

Coach Nick of Bball Breakdown demonstrates the Hammer action on the Dr. Dish Basketball Shooting Machine. Using these basketball shooting drills, any player and team can improve their shooting efficiency when using Dr. Dish.

Whether it’s a designed play in your offense or just an action for each time one of your player’s drive to the baseline, the Hammer Action is a great option to get open corner jump shots.

It’s very important to make sure players understand that if one of their teammates attacks towards the baseline, the opposite side wing needs to rotate to the corner to give the driver an easy kick out option. Once the ball handler has confidence that his teammate will be there ready to receive the pass, the play becomes that much more dangerous.

How To Use Basketball Shooting Machines

As we’ve mentioned before, many think that basketball shooting machines are only for off-season training. But, it’s critical to make sure that every player is getting plenty of repetitions during the season as well with basketball shooting drills.

Any program, coach, or trainer that has a basketball shooting machine should train with a purpose. Whether it’s practicing the Hammer Action or any other action, shooting machines are best utilized when simulating game-like conditions.

Forcing players to train at game speed will only benefit them when they are in the game. We often hear about how players and teams shoot great in practice, but can’t seem to hit shots in games. We specifically designed our machines for players to train like they’re in the game.

With our integrated heart rate strap, players can actually track how they shoot at game speed as opposed to comfortably taking warm up shots. There’s even a setting where the Dr. Dish machine will rotate faster and faster until the player’s heart rate is at game speed. The machine doesn’t have a conscious and won’t give any player a break.
