Throw Downs

The exercise that you see Jalen Rose doing in this video was at one time a very popular exercise.

I took them out of my toolbox awhile ago. Have an evaluative criteria for selecting an exercise or a training method, just copying someone else does not get it done. Ask yourself: Does it work multiple planes of motion, is it proprioceptively demanding, does it address the demands of the sport, what is the context it is used, how do you progress form this exercise?
