In this post we will look at another way of juggling. It’s a simple way to improve your rebound control and is the next step to wall juggling or floor juggling.
How to do it?
Kneel in front of a wall. We recommend that the wall is as flat as possible. Important: throws and catches should be executed with palms facing the floor. This simulates the catch after a rebound.
Take one ball
Thorw it to the wall
Let it hit the floor
Repeat until you have a good feeling for the throw
Take one ball in each hand
Throw the first ball with your stronger hand
Throw the ball in your weaker hand when the first ball comes of the wall
Let the first ball hit the floor and then catch it
Let the second ball hit the floor and catch it with your stronger hand.
Repeat vise versa
Repeat until you can do it ten times in a row.
Hold two balls in your stronger hand and one in your weaker hand
Throw the first ball (ball 1) with your stronger hand
Let it bounce of the wall and throw the second ball (ball 2) with your weaker hand
Catch ball 1 after it bounces of the floor
When ball 2 comes of the wall, throw the third ball (ball 3) of your strong hand
Catch ball 2 after it bounces of the floor with your stronger hand
Catch ball 3 after it bounces of the floor with your weaker hand
Repeat vise versa
The three-ball wall-floor juggling is not that easy, specially when it comes to gaining a flow. Something that helps is using tennis balls instead of floorballs, as they jump a bit better and give you more time. Rubber balls are not recommended, as they may jump too much of the wall and the floor. If feel like you need a challenge you can mix floorballs and tennisballs to increase the degree of difficulty. Also you can vary the distance to the wall to make it more difficult for yourself.
