In today’s video, I give you my top theory on keeping your eyes up while dribbling! This basketball myth is something that has circulated through every level of basketball for many years. However, most people think that by dropping your eyes you won’t have the ability to see the floor. When we look at all the top guards in the NBA think of guys like Kyrie Irving, Stephen Curry, and Chris Paul.

hey what's good on professional trainer coach collin castellaw with shot mechanics basketball today we're gonna bust a basketball myth and that's keeping your eyes up now the game of basketball is full of a ton of myths and for some reason coaches keep teaching over and over and over again and really to the detriment of player so today what I wanted to do is bus one of the biggest ones of all and that's the fact that players are taught that they have to dribble with their eyes up at all times now Before we jump into it I want to fully maximize your handle so all you got to do is click the top wing the description down below and get free instant access to my power handle workout this is a workout I put together specifically for you to help you maximize the power and strength of your handle that way you're never getting the ball stolen again you're able to get out of traps and really be that kind of aggressive style ball handler so click the top link in description down below and get instant access to date now when we think about the myth of eyes up when we're dribbling it makes sense in theory I totally get it and I get why coaches preach on it all the time because it's really easy and it's basically just this the myth is that at any time you're dribbling the basketball you should have your eyes up scanning the course just like this right and that's fine it makes sense I'm not saying don't have your eyes up so before you head to the comments and get all salty look but you got to see the court bla bla bla like cool your jets for just a minute all I'm saying is you don't always have to have your Isaac you don't always have to have your eyes up now the thing about this myth is it's almost like coaches don't believe that peripheral vision is a thing or exists now peripheral vision is basically just the fact that I can see things without actually looking at them I can hold my hand out to the side over here and still see my fingers wiggling even though I'm looking directly at the camera right so as a player if you can maximize your peripheral vision you're gonna be much much much more dynamic so instead of having to have your head up like this when you're dribbling and then look to the left to see your teammate and look to the right to your teammate and then look down here to see the cutter right you can use your peripheral vision to see things in the game and be much much more dynamic if you look at the best ball handlers in the world the Kyrie Irving's the Steph Curry's you know the Chris Paul's all those sorts of guys none of them dribble the basketball like this when they're running in office right most of the time when you watch players their heads down and they're using their peripheral vision to scan the floor but they're using their initial vision to read their defender ooh think about that for a second they're using their peripheral vision to see the floor they're using their dominant vision to see their defender because if you look at a lot of ball heroes like Kyrie if he's getting ready to dance on somebody he's looking at their feet he's seen what they're giving them in front of him and if he's looking like this up at the court he's not gonna be able to see his defender in front of him isn't gonna know how to beat him and attack him right so really start to think about using your peripheral vision to see the floor and that might mean that your head can be down like this all right my head can be down and I can still see up over here I can still see the opposite corner I can still see the opposite wing right if you can start training and developing that it's gonna be big time and really help your ball handling enough talk now it's time for action so what we're gonna do is I've set up a drill here for you to use to really develop and work on your peripheral vision while you're doing your ball Hamlet so basically it's super simple all I've got is I've got a cone at the free-throw line then I've got two cones down on the block so basically just kind of like a big triangle set up now I'm gonna come to the top of the key right here and I'm gonna work on some ball handling options now for you it's totally up to you what you want to work on right I'm gonna be doing between the leg pullback so I'm gonna go and right hand between the leg pull backs to a left hand between the leg pull back but what I want to do is I want to really focus on my eyes during this drill and I want to see the bottom two cones with my peripheral vision right so a lot of times what players are doing if they're working on dribbling bill either keep their head up like this doing their ball handling drills which is not necessarily what we want to do like I talked about earlier or they'll put their head down and they'll work on their ball handling drills like this what we want to do is we want to find that sweet spot so that's why I've got the cones up if you don't have cones that's okay you can use things like extra shoes slides whatever it is you have in the gym water bottles just something to visually be able to pull your eye to so what I'm trying to do is I'm trying to keep my head locked at this middle cone but I'm trying to keep my focus at the too far cone so even though my head's down I'm working on really kind of seeing those cones and that's where my focus is using my peripheral vision right once you match to this feel free to move the cones around and really push your peripheral vision to see how far you can get them away how far up you can get them away and really try to maximize your dribble all right and don't forget if you want to Maksim handle click the top link description down below get free instant access to my power handle workout it's a quick 5 minute workout
