To work on conditioning, flexibility and coordination in the lower body.


Setup 6 hurdles with about 2 feet in between each hurdle. Raise every hurdle by 2-3 feet.
Have your athletes line up behind the first hurdle facing sideways.

Under Under Drill: Athlete stepping sideways under hurdles.


  1. On the coach’s command, the athlete will drop the hips and step sideways underneath the first hurdle.
  2. They will maintain that height, staying low and keeping the knees bent as they continue, stepping under the next hurdle.
  3. They will continue like this to the end of the row of hurdles before returning to the start of the line.
  4. They will now repeat the drill, this time facing the opposite side.

Coaching Tips:

  • Emphasize the importance of keeping the head and shoulders in the same position as you move with the lower body stepping and pushing with the hips.
