Plyo Prep 2 to 1
Plyometric Preparation drills help you practice how to stop (decelerate) and this version, on 1 leg, helps you practice balance and stability. These are the drills you can practice every day before you step on the field or court.
Start by standing tall on 2 legs with your hands up around your chest. Drop down as quick as possible and attack the ground with one leg. Remember that your hands help increase the speed down, so drive them down and back towards your hips. Balance for 1 second and get back to the start position to repeat.
We do these drills to give your brain and body a heads up that you’re about to start moving fast. Doing them on one leg adds some overload to your body and challenges your balance. The goal is to land in a low position and stick the landing. Remember the feeling of sticking. This will help when we move to harder progressions like the lateral bound.
Yours in Performance,
Coach Nicole Rodriguez
