Stair Hops with Coordinated Arm Swings

Athletes hop up stairs following an" up/up/down"coordination pattern being sure to swing arms FORWARD when jumping UP and BACK when jumping DOWN. 

Now ADD speed change-

Focus is on:
-coordination of arm swings with jumps
-chest and head up
-light hops, landing full-footed
-controlling pelvis, particularly when speed changes
