Basic Hurdle Progression

Sometimes keeping things simple is just what you need to make improvements. This version of the hurdle progression covers all of the basics for the developing athlete. The hurdle jump and stick will build explosiveness and help work on deceleration mechanics. The continuous hurdle jumps increase speed by decreasing ground contact time and improving the efficiency of the stretch shortening cycle. The change of direction hurdle jumps work on agility and body control and give our athletes a better sense of where their body is in space. Try them all at home and if you need hurdles check out our friends at performbetter.com!
