Lateral Hurdle Step with Single Leg Land

This is a great exercise for any athlete looking to develop their agility, speed and single leg control.

We use it alot here in the clinic during the end stages of lower limb rehab to prepare the athlete for a return to training.

Key Points:

 

(1) During the Step Movement:

  • Use your arms to help generate force as you step across.
  • Minimum ground contact time, “imagine hot coals” underneath your feet.

(2) On Landing:

  • Attempt to land softly with bent knee.
  • Stick the Landing” and hold for 2/3 seconds.
