Plant Your Hands

Press Up

Push upwards to gain some height, then transition your body to the other side.

Get a Boost

How To Conquer
Plant your hands firmly on the top of the hurdles, then give a good hop (or get a good boost) to get your chest over the top. Use your body’s momentum to pivot and swing your legs over to the other side.
