Lateral Bound Progression

Our standard Bounding Progression that we use.

Just like our Hurdle Jump and 1-Leg Medial/Lateral Hurdle Hop and 1-Leg Linear Hurdle Hop Progressions, our goal is to simply learn how the jump and land in proper positions, and then progressing from simple to more complex by adding gravity and/or more of a true plyometric.

1. Lateral Bound and Stick ๐Ÿ‘‰ simply jumping and landing in the frontal plane with a combination and height and distance.

2. 45 Degree Bound and Stick ๐Ÿ‘‰ instead of adding an obstacle like we do in most of our other plyo progressions, we add a linear component to the bound, but still emphasizing the ability to land properly.

3. 45 Degree Bound with 2-Bounce ๐Ÿ‘‰ we have no added a small plyometric through a mini-bounce to start becoming more reactive to the ground.

4. Continuous 45 Degree Bound ๐Ÿ‘‰ finally a pure power/plyometric.

Well typically spend 3 weeks in each progression until we move on to the next โžก๏ธ but we wonโ€™t move on to the next progression if the athlete isnโ€™t ready.

Programming Advice: we stay at 3 sets of 5 hops each in all 4 phases. Since each phase adds a level of intensity, we keep the volume the same throughout the progression.
