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.
