Butt Kicks

Proper Form

Be sure to pull your knees up and in front of you before attempting to hit you butt with your heel. You want to avoid practicing what sprinters refer to as “backside mechanics” i.e. dragging your leg back behind you before you try to kick your butt with you heel.

Remember you want all you momentum moving forward. This drill is not only designed to help you get great hamstrings but also to help you get faster. We all know when you get faster you will certainly look better.
