To prepare the body for more intensive exercise while improving coordination, conditioning and flexibility.
Setup 6 hurdles with about 2-3 feet in between each hurdle. Have your athlete facing the first hurdle.
- On the coach’s command, the athletes will begin by skipping over hurdles, alternating legs with each hurdle.
- The athlete should focus on rotating the hips while minimizIng the amount of rotation from the upper body, instead using the arms to maintain balance.
- Remind your athletes to stay on the balls of their feet and never let their heels touch the ground through this drill.
