Reasoning Behind Hop Back Variation

Stepback

Thought Process:

Combining the previous two feels together while also encourages full foot contact in the back leg provides the opportunity for an efficient load of the back leg. Stepping backward then moving forward also creates rhythm and allows for athletes to experiment with tempo.

Movement Prescription:

Quad dominant, toe push. Forced sit, down but not forward. Too fast or too slow first move. Inability to remove slack in lower body into rotation. Forced internal rotation of the back leg.

Feels/Cues:

Smooth back, smooth forward. Jog to a sprint. Stepback into the whole foot.

Common Compensations:

No leg lift, not moving center of mass backward or forward, jumping onto back leg then pushing out of it.
