Becca Brown 1/3/13 Basketball Conditioning There are many different drills you can do to help your basketball team stay in shape or get in shape. For instance: jumping rope, 17's, suicides, wall sits, and lane shuffle. All of these drill coaches use to help condtion their team. These drills are very mental and test how strong you really are to keep going to finish the drill or to quit because it gets too hard. Jumping rope develops stamina, leg strength, agilty and coordination, timing, quickness, and hand-eye coordination. But what happens if you run into a basketball player that doesn't know how to jump rope because they have poor coordination. Trust me these players still exist, so you have to teach them step by step. Begin by jumping as high as you can off both feet. Your hands should be above your head and rotating to help you jump high. As soon as you land, go right back up. Repeat this twenty-five times. Next, jump twenty-five times off your right foot, then twenty-five times off your left. Keep your hands up and go up as quickly as you can after landing. Next, jump twenty-five times bringing your knees to your chest. You can now bring your arms down in order to maintain balance, but continue jumping as quickly as possible. This is a drill I do everyday before practice and it really works. 17's is also a great drill to help build up your conditioning. You start behind one of the sidelines. You run to the other sideline counting as 1 then you run back to count as 2. You do this until you reach 17. (Always ending on the opposite side from which you started). To be in very good basketball shape you should be able to do this in under 1 minute. Almost evey sport knows what a suicide is. The players hate it,…
I tried out for the High School basketball team the summer of my sophomore year. Up to then I had never played basketball in my life. As a matter of fact, I didn’t know anything about basketball. I just woke up one day and thought to myself, “I think I want to play basketball”. So I tried out.
The team roster was printed out on the boy’s gym door 3 days after tryouts. So, I casually walked up to the list, and skimmed through it, and to my pleasant surprise, my name was on the roster! I…
man is like a machine that only responds to conditioning. It is saying that our behavior is a result of the conditioning. Third, behaviorism teaches us that we are not responsible for our actions. Since it teaches us that we are like machines responding to stimuli, the actions we do are inevitable. Lastly, Behaviorism is manipulative. By controlling rewards and punishments, you can shape the behavior of another person.
Classical and operant conditioning share many of the same basic principles and…

Classical conditioning or if you will “Pavlovian conditioning” was produced by Ivan Pavlov. He was a Russian physician most familiar with the digestive system, but made a breakthrough in psychology for his theory on instinct based learning. There are three basic parts to classical conditioning. The first part is the unconditioned…
Basketball is a sport that was intentionally invented. It is one of the most popular
sports played by millions of people around the world. A man named, James Naismith,
created basketball in 1891, when he was assigned to teach a physical education class for
the Young Man’s Christian Association (YMCA) in Springfield, Massachusetts. He
needed to invent a desirable game everyone could play indoors. Naismith combined
elements of outdoor games like soccer and…

Operant conditioning (or instrumental conditioning) is a type of learning in which an individual's behavior is modified by its consequences; the behaviour may change in form, frequency, or strength. Operant conditioning is a term that was coined by B. F. Skinner in 1937 (J. Staddon & D. Cerutii 2010). The word operant refers to, "an item of behavior that is initially spontaneous, rather than a response to a prior…
shooting average from 15% to 30%. I chose this project because growing up I always dreamt of getting the opportunity to join the varsity basketball team in high school. And then maybe play college basketball and make it to the NBA®. But before I get ahead of myself, I need to train harder. The topic I was leaning towards was the sports idea category and basketball fit perfect for my final product.
The sources I will use to achieve my goal include websites such as NBA.com and iHoops.com. They tell…

To train for basketball there are certain things that I have to do. I have to have a plan for warm-up, weights, conditioning, individual workouts, and personal goals. I will walk through every plan and explain what needs to be done for each.
The first thing that needs to be done when training for basketball is I need to warm-up before every workout. I jog full court and back at least twice to warm up my muscles. Then…
Air-conditioning (AC) can be illustrated and explained to be inferior, when compared to a vacation in (travel to) a cold/chilly place (which is assumed to be a normal good in this case) and thus arise to be a Giffen good. Assumptions made for this purpose are as follows: i. There is a lack of close substitutes to air-conditioning. ii. Air-conditioning does constitute a substantial percentage of the income of the consumer in question and so does the vacation (a part of his/her salary every month going…
Classical and Operant Conditioning
Classical and operant conditioning are two imperative ideas essential in psychology. While both conditions have to do with learning, the methods are fairly different. In order to comprehend how each of these behavior alteration methods can be used, it is also crucial to understand how classical conditioning and operant conditioning differ from one another.
Classical Conditioning was invented by Ivan Pavlov, a Russian physiologist. It contains placing a neutral…
