Wall Sprints

To perform this drill, extend your arms and place your hands on a wall or fence. Lean forward so your body is at a 30 to 45-degree angle. On a partner's or coach's count, run in place. Focus on moving your feet up and down as fast as possible. Your coach or partner should call out one, three or five. Each number is the number of steps you should take. Perform the drill for three repetitions of 30 seconds, only taking steps after a given count. Take a rest of between 30 to 45 seconds.
