5kg weighted vest, a chair and six cones.


Don the weighted vest and sit on the edge of the chair, ready to go. When the coach calls out a number from one to six, explode out of the chair to the corresponding cone, before returning to the start position. Then repeat.

More after the break


The coach stands behind the player and throws a ball over their shoulder. The player must burst off the chair, retrieve it and return to the coach.

SETS 3 (with a 2-minute recovery between each set)
