Obstacle Course, Combining Exercise Drills
This drill actually combines various exercise drills that move the body in different movement patterns such as:
- Side Shuffle
- Zig Zag
- Backward Cone Touches
- and Circle Runs
excerpt taken from the book, ‘How I Got My Wiggle Back’, The drills concentrate on moving in multiple directions (side to side, zig-zagging, circles) to challenge spring suspension system muscles that often become weak because we don’t vary our movement. We move in a straight line too much-on a flat footpath, a treadmill, or a Stairmaster- and by doing so only exercise the foot spring suspension muscles in the front and back, not on the side and elsewhere.
