Rapid Hops

Building on the foundation of the Grounded Hops exercise, the Rapid Hops exercise takes it a step further by increasing the cadence and height of the hopping. This progression is designed to further stimulate the elastic structures of the foot and ankle complex, accommodating the demands of energy absorption and rebound that are essential for efficient movement.

The Rapid Hops exercise is a significant stepping stone towards mastering the ability to land, absorb, and then recoil the body during running, where landing forces can reach 3 to 4 times body weight due to gravitational acceleration.
