Transcript of Basketball Layup

Muscle and Skeletal System Working Together in a Basketball Layup
“A layup in basketball is a two-point shot attempt made by leaping from below, laying the ball up near the basket, and using one hand to bounce it off the backboard and into the basket. The motion and one-handed reach distinguish it from a jump shot. The layup is considered the most basic shot in basketball. When doing a layup, the player lifts the outside foot, or the foot away from the basket.” (www.wikipedia.com)
Course of Movement
1-2 Dribbling Phase
3-6 Three-Steps Phase
7-8 Jumping/Landing Phase
Dribbling Phase (Wrist)
Dribbling Phase (Elbow)
Main Bones: Radius, Ulna, Carpals, Metacarpals
Wrist Joint (Synovial): Responsible for flexion and extension of wrist
Main Bones: Humerus, Radius, Ulna
Elbow Joint (Synovial): Responsible for flexion, extension, pronation and supination
Dribbling Phase
Muscles Involved: Deltoid, Biceps, Triceps, Brachialis , Brachioradialis, Wrist Flexors/Extensors
Jumping/Landing Phase (Vertical Jump)
Main Bones: Tibia, Fibula, Talus, Metatarsals, Phalanges, Calcaneus
Joints Involved: Hip, Knee, Ankle
Jumping/Landing Phase (Vertical Jump)
Movements: Athlete pulls up right knee and jumps with left leg (Right handed lay up)
Muscles involved: Knee movement: Hamstrings, Quadriceps, Gluteus Maximus, Left leg movement: Calf muscle, Gastrognemius, Quadriceps Femoris, Gluteus Maximus, lower back and abdomen.

Movements: Athlete pulls up right knee and jumps with left leg (Right handed lay up)
Muscles involved
Knee movement: Hamstrings, Quadriceps, Gluteus Maximus
Left leg movement: Gastrocnemius, Soleus, Achilles Tendon, Quadriceps Femoris, Gluteus Maximus, Latissimus Dorsi and Rectus Abdominis .
Jumping/Landing Phase
(Releasing the Ball)
Movements: Athlete pulls up the hand and releases the ball.
Muscles involved: Biceps, Triceps, Deltoid and Pectoralis Major.
Joints involved: Elbow joint, shoulder joint, wrist joint.
Jumping/Landing Phase (Landing)
Core stability: Core muscles (Abdomen and lower back)
Muscles Involved: Abdomen, lower back, Gluteus Maximus, Hamstrings, Quadriceps, Gastrocnemius, calf muscle
Although the basketball layup is a very simple action, it has great complexity in relationship to muscle and skeletal system.
However, by using this presentation, you may be able to understand the muscles you must train. For example, what muscles you must train to to increase your vertical.
3 Step Phase (Muscles)
Right leg
(Flexion of the knee joint)
Biceps femoris, semitendinosus, semimembranosus

These muscles make up the hamstrings
Left leg
(Flexion of the hip joint)
Pectineus, Sartorius
