Importance of biomechanics in Basketball layup shot


Author(s): Sankarshan Chakraborty and Dr. Papan Mondal

Abstract: Biomechanics is the study of human movement, using principles of mechanics & applied anatomy. Biomechanics can effectively refine sports activities and promote athletes' scientific training. The theory teaching and practice of biomechanics are combined to promote the coordinated development of the athletes. In today's competitive Sport, the difference between winning and losing is getting slimmer by the day. The Biomechanics helps to achieve a competitive edge through analysis and identifying strengths and weakness of sportspersons and suggesting remedial measures to correct defects if any. Basketball is one of the most popular and widely viewed sports in the world. Points are scored by throwing the ball through the basket from above, the team with more points at the end of the game wins. For offensive side, achieving a fast break or finding an opening in a weak defense can result in a layup. For a player to improve their layup, improve accuracy, make the shot more efficient and speed up the run into the shot, it is important to look at a few biomechanical principals. These principals tell us how to move our body efficiently, improve our skills and rectify faulty actions. The knowledge of biomechanics helps the players, coaches and the related persons to enhance the basketball layup shot.
