Fave Workout Fridays- September 16, 2016

So this week we’re really into agility hurdles. Our trainers like to incorporate them into client sessions to increase quick feet, agility and speed. Here are two of our favorite moves. *If you cant get you hand on some hurdles, try grabbing some small cones or placing masking tape on the floor to mark your targets

Two Over Drill:
Place two hurdles one yard apart. Straddle one of the two hurdles and two-step over. When the lead leg touches on the outside of the second hurdle, immediately change direction.
*Pay attention to Lamont’s Trail leg. He never lets it touch the outside of the second hurdle. Make sure you complete the same number of drills alternating lead legs

Double Leg Hop into a Burpee
Place two hurdles a comfortable width apart. Starting on the outside of one hurdle, hop to the middle and immediately hop of the second hurdle on the outside. Drop your chest to the floor to a burpee position. Stand and repeat.
