Lateral Hop and Hold
Perform 2 sets of 10 reps and rest 25 seconds between sets. Over time, progress to 3-4 sets of 10 reps with the 25-second rest.
Stand on right leg in athletic position
Bound laterally to left
Land on left leg, hold position 2 seconds
Bound laterally to right
Land on right leg, hold position 2 seconds
Coaching Point: Hold the landing for two seconds. Make sure, first, that you’re in an athletic position, and, second, that you are able to move seamlessly into your next movement. If you are too hunched over or extended too far to one side, you will have to regroup before making another movement.
