Warrior Lift Drill

Warrior Lift Drill 

Warrior Lift Throws are a balance exercise. 

We start in a deep forward lunge, or warrior position. The front knee bent at a 90 degree angle with toes pointing forward, and the back leg straight, and up on the toes. 

From here, we pivot on the back foot, grounding it, and drive off our front leg with enough force that we can get into our pitching leg lift. 

After we balance, we deliver the ball to the target.

Our goal here is to test lateral balance with a deep lunge, as well as our grounded balance with the leg lift.
