Explosive Start Throws

Stand with feet slightly wider than hip-width apart. Knees should be slightly bent.
Pick medicine ball up to chest level.
Quickly explode up and press the ball straight out as far and fast as you can.

Downhill Run

Partner Assisted Running

1. Start by attaching the belt around your waist and the other belt around your partners waist.
2. Start by taking the slack out of the tubing.
3. Once the tubing is taut then start running and your partner is to create resistance so that you have to work harder to run. Continue sprinting or running for the desired distance.

5. Variations: Have a faster person in the front to tow the slower runner and force them to run faster. Another variation is to have the front runner create a stretch in the tubing and then both runners take off at the same time. The tubing pulls the 2nd runner at a faster rate of speed until the tension is gone in the tubing.
