Coaching Tips: Hold a dumbbell between the ankles for these weighted pull ups. Just be careful when you come off the bar so that you don’t accidentally roll your ankle. Try to spread the floor with your feet when doing the lunges and avoid taking too large of steps. For the lateral shuffles, stay in a quarter squat and keep your chest up, push the pace on these and don’t get complacent!
