Lateral Run exercise
Adding in plyometric work into your current routine is always a great idea. It shocks the body from your traditional workout regime and focuses on improving speed, coordination, agility, and overall athletic performance. It’s also great for any stop-and-go sport athletes who are looking to improve their game performance.
Here I am doing a lateral run using the Lebert Equalizer as my floor marker. You could also use dumbbells, a speed ladder, rings, cones, mini hurdles, or anything else that is portable and convenient.
Keep a low center of gravity and “run” side-to-side over your floor guide one foot at a time landing on the balls of the feet. Repeat right to left and left to right
A few other amazing plyometric exercises include shuttle runs, jump box drills, tuck jumps, stair running, and leaps to name a few.
