Basketball is a difficult technique that requires a lot of requirements but it is also the goal of basketball players from the movement level, semi-professional to professional. So what are the factors needed to successfully perform a dunk?
Dunk technique in basketball means that the player jumps up and presses the ball into the basket with his hand. Another popular concept that is also related to basketball is Slam Dunk. This is the action when the player jumps up high, then slams the basket with the hand (Slam), with both hands or only one hand. It can be said that this is an indispensable technique when playing professional basketball.
With a height up to a basketball hoop more than 3m, of course the fitness issue plays a very important role. The height of most Vietnamese basketball players is in the range of 1m75 to 1m85, so putting up the basketball is quite difficult.
To overcome the limitations of bodybuilding, athletes who want to baskets successfully need to focus on the resilience and technique.
If you do not have a good height, you need to have good rebound. Therefore, athletes are always looking for ways to improve their resilience through exercises to make the goal easier.
A good rebound is to turn really high, very fast. If you want to do that, then of course you have to be really ideal. An overweight or underweight person is unlikely to have the power to turn up well enough to perform a basketball shot. Because facing the basket means bringing the ball from above into the basket, which means you have to turn high enough to reach the ball high on the rim of the basket.
Many new players believe that, just turning high enough will have a delicious basketball face down. This is completely wrong. Unless you have a height so high that you just need to lift your heels up and reach to stuff the ball directly into the basket, of course, the number of people who do this is rare.
So what techniques are needed to make a successful dunk?
Turn on high but need to know how to turn quickly. During the competition, the opponent does not always give you enough space and time to run comfortably. Also when you turn on the air, you must know how to keep your body stable and achieve the highest point in the vertical.
