Hi, this is Joe Wang, head coach and founder of South Bay Youth Sports. Today, we are going to cover speed training exercises for youth football. The next drill we are going to cover is the shuttle run, also known as the five, ten, five. You'll need cones and you'll need a field space. The shuttle run will cover your lateral movement, your explosion skills and your bended knee flex. This allows you to have strong speed and agility. What this will show you is how the athlete can run sideways, okay, explode and touch the cone; and run 10 yards and touch the other side of the cone; and then, run through the middle five yard line. This will strengthen your core explosion skills. Jameson now will demonstrate how to run a proper shuttle run. Jameson, get in a three-point stance. Once you get in a three-point stance, okay, and explode to your right. Ready, set, go. Touch the line, explode through the line, there you go. Nice job, Jameson. Again, this is Joe Wang with South Bay Youth Sports. Thank you for watching speed training exercises for youth football.
