Box Toe Touches

• Begin in athletic stance with secure box in front of you
• Drive right knee up and touch bottom of forefoot on box
• Simultaneously, return right foot to ground and bring left forefoot to top of box
• Repeat in continuous fashion for specified duration

Time: 30 seconds
Coaching Points: The box height should be high enough so that thigh is parallel to floor when toes are on the box // Drive with your knees // Touch box as lightly as possible with toes // As soon as toes touch the box, switch position of legs as quickly as possible
Dr. Moreau: This exercise is for acceleration, quickness and foot speed. It’s teaching him to really pull his knee up, which mimics the hockey stride and increases speed.
