Retro Gait Training Over Hurdles (with Uninvolved Leg)

  • HOW: Using cones, lines, hurdles, or any other object, slowly step over each object with your uninvolved leg. As you take a step with your involved leg, work on “staying strong” and squeezing your glutes and quadriceps as you make contact with the ground. The goal is to feel strong on your leg like no one can push you over. Think about pushing your knee backwards and straight.
  • FEEL: Feel your knee straighten and your quadriceps and glutes fire when your foot is on the ground.
  • COMPENSATION: Do not let your knee buckle. Keep it squeeze as hard as you can when your weight is on your foot.
