Blue Dragon Softball 2021

Making Your Athlete Faster Is NOT “Just Run More”

In this drill, we are focusing on the efficiency of "leaning forward from the ankles" as we jump and hop forward, allowing the clean angle of the body from ankle to shoulders to stay in line as we move--propelling us forward, naturally.  Then we discussed staying tight through the core, glutes and thighs.  We did this drill in 2-foot hops, forward/side/backwards.  As we got better with this movement we tied in the importance of the elbow drive to add...
