NFL QB Andy Dalton performs the Explosive Mini Hurdle Drill to reinforce the concept of getting his lead foot down to the ground as fast as possible when driving from the start position for the 40-Yard Dash.
The Explosive Mini Hurdle Start also helps with eliminating the false step for the 40-Yard Dash, or the notion of having to lean back in order to create force moving forward for the start.
