Sand Pit, Fun and Games!
Endurance and Explosive Training
Training in sand is very effective for increasing strength and explosiveness. Uses include plyometrics which reduce wear and tear on the body from landing on hard surfaces, “tire relay’s” with 250 lbs tires, running, hurdles, lateral movement footwork and speed development and many other creative things which are made much more challenging when done in sand.
The kids just LOVE the sand pit…..well, maybe just the coaches love the sandpit.
