    Sprint-Hurdle-Sprint Agility Drill

    -

    Here’s another Speed and Agility drill we like for our athletes. The Sprint-Hurdle-Sprint Drill emphasizes acceleration, deceleration, change of direction (lateral phase), and foot speed.

    In the video, one of our athletes — a high school junior football player — demonstrates each phase of the drill. Here’s the progression:

    • Left foot over hurdles, right foot outside hurdles
    • Right foot over hurdles, left foot outside hurdles
    • Both feet over hurdles, left foot first
    • Both feet over hurdles, right foot first
    • One foot over hurdles, left foot first (left-right-left)
    • One foot over hurdles, right foot first (right-left-right)
    • Lateral shuffle over hurdles, left foot first
    • Lateral shuffle over hurdles, right foot first

    Distance between first cone and first hurdle = 5 yards

    Distance between hurdles = 1 yard

    Distance between last hurdle and last cone = 5 yards

    Get STRONGER, Get FASTER!
