Two feet in each rung of the first ladder. When players get to the end of the first ladder it's time to take on the cones.
Players must start in the middle of the four cones and jump out with feet together to all four sides of the compass - South, East, West and North!
After the cones players now advance forward and run through the ladder, ensuring they place two feet in each rung.
Player line up behind the first ladder and then take it in turns to run up the ladder, making sure they place both feet between each rung.
After this they then shuffle forward and back along the cones.
When they reach the final cone they should use a burst of acceleration to run forward and complete the final ladder, the same as before, before jogging to the back of the line ready to go again!
When the player reaches the end of the first ladder, the indicator shows them which way to go (left/right).
The player must respond to the sign and side-steps in the direction indicated before then sprints off again to the cones placed further away.
Good exercise for hip flexiability and foot speed. Drive knees across the body and your arms in the opposite direction.
