Acceleration drill on wall
When we are doing a drill we need to ask ourselves:
- Do I know how to do the drill?
- Why are we doing the drill?
WHY wall drill for acceleration:
- To feel correct body position during acceleration. To feel the lean. Are my hips, knee, ankle, foot in correct positions?
- To feel pushing behind my centre of gravity.
- To understand the leg action during acceleration
