“How do you increase speed?”

That’s one of the questions I get most often from parents. It’s what they see the most.

The goal is to rotate the top hand from pointing directly at the ceiling to underneath the trunk. […]

The low hurdles just make things more challenging in this environment, but aren’t necessary. The lateral […]
