Practice doesn’t end at training.

Your athlete should continue training and practicing their drills while they are home.

WARM UPS

Find an open area in your home for your athlete to move safely. Have them do warm-up exercises in sets of ten to loosen their muscles and start the blood flowing. Choose either warm up from below:

  1. Burpees
  2. High-knees
  3. Frankensteins
  4. Jogging
  5. Reverse ups and downs
  6. Planks
  7. Squats

*Make sure your athlete returns to the original positional stance after each set. Start slow for three minutes and then speed up.
