Cone Drills for All Ages: Part 2

After checking out Part 1, here’s a couple more fun cone drills to add to your fitness regimen.
________________________________________________________________
T-Drill
  • Set up cones in the shape of a T.  From cone 1, walk forward 10 paces and place cone 2 down.  From each side, place a cone 5 paces out.  Let’s call the right cone, #3, and left cone, #4.

Run from cone 1 up to middle cone 2.

Side shuffle to cone 3.
Then side shuffle left to cone 4, travelling past cone 2.
Side shuffle back to cone 2.
Then run backwards to cone 1.
When doing drills on grass, you need to be careful and really pick up your feet! If you did this on a hard surface, get down lower as you side shuffle by bringing your hips back more.  The lower center of gravity makes you travel faster.
__________________________________________________________________
One Cone Lateral Jump
  • Do a 2 foot hop sideways over the cone, land soft (absorbing shock) and hold the landing for 2-3 seconds before going back to the other side.  Your focus is on landing the jump with control.  If jumping is not an option for you, then step over cone and try to balance for 2-3 seconds before going back to the other side.  You can do this exercise travelling forward/back and diagonally too.

Make it a challenge!  Try some of these drills with family and friends and see who does it the fastest!
