How to Hurdle: Discount or "Jam" Hurdle Set Up and Technique Training Drill

This video teaches an athlete how to discount or 'jam' the hurdles appropriately, a technique used in hurdle training. The first hurdle will be placed on the actual mark set up for a sprint hurdle race. The second hurdle will be placed two steps, heel to toe, from the actual mark it is supposed to be set at, effectively jamming the hurdle. The third hurdle will be placed four steps, heel to toe, from the actual mark it is supposed to be set at, jamming the third hurdle as well. If a fourth hurdle were to be set up, there would be six heel to toe steps from the actual mark, and so on. For younger or beginning level athletes, there may need to be even more heel to toe steps placed. For example, the second hurdle may be 4 steps in with the third hurdle being 8 steps in, etc. Remember, the first hurdle will always remain at the first mark.
