Wall Drives for Acceleration

Wall drives are an excellent drill to develop the correct posture and leg action for acceleration.

Key points:

1) Body at 45 degree angle
2) Straight line body position through out
3) Low heel recovery with toe pulled up (dorsi flexion of the ankle)
4) Focus on driving back with foot, your contact point should be behind the hips

Recommended Progressions:
Move into the Tall & Fall drill or harness resisted accelerations (from a 45 degree angle start) to allow the opportunity to incorporate the arm drive and forward movement.
