National Academy of Sports Medicine answeredBasketball is whole body exercise that utilizes the entire leg musculature at once, so isolated exercises like leg extensions and leg curls are not appropriate. Basketball players should stick to compound movement exercises including leg press, squats, step-ups, lunges, dead lifts, and single leg touch-downs. Strength exercises are performed using heavier weights for less repetitions. For example, perform 6-12 repetitions at roughly 75% of your maximum single repetition weight.
