STACK Challenge: 60-Yard Shuttle

This week's STACK Challenge tests your speed, agility and acceleration with a staple of the NFL Combine: the 60-Yard Shuttle.

Every week, a new STACK Challenge gives you an opportunity to test your athletic ability and win a STACK T-shirt. Take the challenge and enter to win a T-shirt by tweeting your results with #STACKChallenge.

Compare your speed, agility and acceleration to that of a top NFL prospect by trying a staple of the NFL Combine: the 60-Yard Shuttle.

Prepare for the 60-Yard Shuttle by lining up four cones five yards apart. The challenge begins when you start sprinting from the first cone to the second. When you reach the second cone, turn and sprint back to the start. Immediately sprint 10 yards to the third cone and back. Immediately sprint 15 yards to the fourth cone and back—for a total of 60 yards.

Lower your hips at each turn and plant your outside foot right next to each cone. Improve your time by alternating the direction you turn at each cone, maintaining a forward body lean, pumping your arms and legs to drive out of each cut, and sprinting all the way through the finish.

The Challenge

Complete the 60-Yard Shuttle as quickly as possible.

How Do You STACK Up?

Oregon State receiver Brandin Cooks (who won $100,000 for running the fastest 40-Yard Dash in adidas cleats at this year's NFL Combine) set a record this year for the fastest 60-Yard Shuttle ever recorded at the Combine (10.72 seconds). Although the NFL 60-Yard Shuttle is set up a bit differently from the version we've described, you can compare your time with this year's draft class on NFL.com.
