If you're looking to improve basketball shooting, a great drill to try is called Dorsiflexion. To perform this drill, start by putting one foot forward a couple of inches away from the wall. While keeping your ankle still and slightly bent, slowly move your shin forward until your knee touches the wall without your knee lifting up. After five or six repetitions, take a step further from the wall, and compare both sides. While the goal is to even out strength between an injured and non-injured side as you increase distance from the wall, Dorsiflexion also provides proper form when shooting basketballs for all skill levels.
