Ladder/Hurdle Drill Variations

I like to challenge my young clients with these ladder/hurdle combo drills.  I’ve been working with these kids for a while and they definitely have “earned” the advanced drills.

Combining 2 different tools into one exercise is a fun way to change foot/leg “gait”, having to bring your knees up higher over the hurdles, and coordinating the “lead” foot changes.  Also, moving laterally yet moving forward/backward is demanding…the kids really have to THINK about what their feet are doing!
