I've searched everywhere on this site and looked through the old posts, but I'm having trouble finding information on how to practice 'sprinting' through the hurdles and to not jump.
For example, today after hip mobility I decided to do a little test and check my hurdle form by just jogging through some hurdles at their lowest height (30 inches). I've had bad technique for the past 2 years, which involved jumping the hurdle, and this has wired my system to jump the hurdle. Anyways, I tried to jog through and even at 30 inches I found myself jumping over the hurdle, even while actively thinking I have to run through it.
What does everyone else do to teach this cue?
I've been trying to think of the hurdle as just something I have to take a big step over, but that's still not working and I'm jumping with my trail leg. In drills, my lead leg is fine and I come to a full A motion into the B motion, but when I try and do it even at half speed I revert back to the old way of swinging my leg up in a straight line and I can't get into the proper form.
Is the proper technique gonna come with practice, and am I worrying to much about this?
What it boils down to, are there any drills, running protocols, or cues anybody can share that would help me in sprinting through the hurdles?
Big thanks in advance...
