Lead Leg Hurdle Technique: 4 Step Hurdle Drill

This a 4 step hurdle drill, typically used for longer sprint hurdlers such as the 300 and 400 meter hurdles. It is important for an athlete to learn to use both legs as a lead leg when hurdling longer sprint hurdle races. An athlete should take 4 steps, or an even number of steps, between each hurdle forcing an athlete to alternate lead legs. This drill is set up where the hurdle are placed at their correct marks for the 100 or 110 meter hurdle sprints, performed at a conservative speed to negotiate each hurdle with 4 steps. It is also recommended to use pre-wrap setup when performing this drill for the first time so an athlete can safely get comfortable with the drill. Once an athlete has become proficient with the drill, hurdles can then be used.
