Hurdles: 5 Step Pre-Wrap Drill
This video teaches how to set up a 5 step pre-wrap hurdle drill. The first hurdle will be placed at the correct position for a first hurdle in a sprint hurdle race. The second hurdle will be 10 steps, heel to toe, beyond where the hurdle should be placed during a sprint hurdle race. The third hurdle will be 20 steps, heel to toe, beyond where the hurdle should be placed during a sprint hurdle race. This distance will vary depending on the skill level of an athlete, condensing this distance for younger and beginning hurdlers. Make sure that whatever the final number is on the second hurdle, that it is doubled for third hurdle. For example, if hurdle two is set 8 feet beyond the original mark, then hurdle three should be placed at 16 feet beyond the original mark.
