Improving Power from Low Positions Continued…

Lateral Bound from Pause w/ Drop Start

Similar goal as the Squat Jump w/ Quick Dip with maximizing transition speed except now the push is lateral, so the athlete should “push the turf away” to cover as much ground laterally as possible. The emphasis is on the push, NOT on reaching out with the lead leg.

Typically performed for 3-4 sets of 5 reps per side.

To your success,
