Purpose

Stresses quick trail-leg recovery and active landing.

Setup

  • You need one low hurdle.

How it Works

  1. Hurdler stands at low hurdle.
  2. Hurdler places bent lead leg over the hurdle, leans forward and pushes off his trail leg.
  3. Hurdler lands on lead foot on other side of hurdle, brings the trail leg over and immediately sprints 10 meters straight ahead.
  4. Perform multiple repetitions.

Coaching Tips

  • The key to success with this drill is to keep the trail leg bent and to surge forward as quickly as possible into the sprint when the trail leg hits the ground.
