Landing Exercises

Exercises designed to improve your body's shock
absorbing ability, as well as the ways in which it
stores and releases kinetic energy.

    Coaching Points

    • Start in a tall position on your tip toes.
    • Rapidly drop down into a quarter squat position, absorbing the landing.
    • In this position your feet should be flat in the floor, your knees in line with your toes, your hips back and your chest up.
    • When landing I want you to imagine you have a sleeping baby strapped to your chest. Your aim is to not wake the baby up. This means you must land softly in a good position.
