SEMINAR PREPARATION

In preparation for some of the activities, drills, and changes that will be worked on with run mechanics/technique we recommend that you start doing the following so that your body is prepared for this challenge.

Up your box jumps, double unders, and jump roping. Start jumping rope 2-3 times per week barefoot for 5 min (increase time as cert nears) during some of your warm ups.

Open up your calves and feet, especially target the achilles tendon and plantar fascia.  Use of a lacrosse ball is a key to open your calves and feet.
