KEEP MOV­ING

Got a fence to hur­dle? Don’t stop on the other side. ‘Cats are run­ning the sec­ond they land,’ says Er­wan Le Corre, who trained with McDougall. ‘Copy them and you’ll de­crease im­pact and be ready to flow into your next move.’

BE PRE­CISE

Stay up­right for longer by adding pre­ci­sion jumps to your train­ing. ‘Pick a spot two feet [60cm] in front of you, and jump and land on it as softly as pos­si­ble – this will im­prove your bal­ance and loosen up your legs,’ says McDougall.

GET LOW

‘Move on your hands and feet at the same time – it im­proves bal­ance and trains you to do more than one thing at a time,’ says McDougall. ‘An in­fant can do it, but if you’re 25 or older you need to re­ac­ti­vate that hand/foot co-or­di­na­tion.’
