Want to Get Better at Sports Learn to Juggle

Directions:.The three ball cascade is the easiest juggling pattern in existence. It is a starting point for everything else that jugglers do.

Learning to juggle this pattern is also good for cross-training as it greatly improves hand-eye co-ordination, concentration, and many other aspects of your physical and mental self. You've come to this page already, so don't stop now. Let's learn to juggle!.Step One: Pick up one ball and stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Start throwing the ball from hand to hand, aiming for an imaginary point just over the opposite shoulder of the hand you are throwing from. Don't follow the ball with your eyes, instead look at this point and throw the ball into your vision.

It is unnecessary to look at the ball when it is in your hands. Besides, when you are juggling three balls you will be using this time to look at the next ball as it reaches this desired point. When you are catching the ball cushion it by bringing down your hand at the same time the ball hits it.

Continue this motion by scooping your hand into a throwing motion. Throw the ball to that imaginary point.Step Two: Pick up a second ball. Throw the first ball just like you learned in the previous step.

This time, just as the first ball has reached its peak and is beginning to fall, throw the second ball. Once again, throw it like you learned in step one. Now, catch the first ball and then catch the second. Think about what you have done and how you can correct any errors then try again. DO NOT pass the second ball from hand to hand (like this), make sure that you are THROWING the ball and make sure that the second throw is the same height as the first. Step two is called the exchange.

Step Three: It is now time to juggle all three balls. Hold two balls in one hand and one ball in the other. Throw first ball (the hand with two balls throws first) and then second ball (this is in the hand with one ball) just like in step two.

However, this time instead of catching both balls and stopping, throw the third ball just as the second ball has reached its peak and is beginning to fall. Catch the 2nd and 3rd ball (you should have already caught the first ball by now. You have just gone once through the three ball cascade. After you are comfortable doing what I just described, try doing four throws, then five, and so on until you can basically juggle this pattern for as long as you want. Oh, and one last thing.

Many people throw father forward than they should when they are first learning to juggle. If this is the case for you, simply practice against a wall.
