Bag and Trap Drill
Purpose – To develop a good trap technique by improving stance, footwork and take off while working on delivering a aggressive block into a blocking dummy.
Equipment – 5 blocking dummies and 5 bag holders (players)
How – A proper trap block like all blocks starts with the proper footwork and technique. He starts in a three-point DW stance and on “GO” he takes a drop step squares his shoulders to the bag and wishbone blocks it. The bag is 2 yards away. A good block is indicated by the bag popping up and back at the same time. Let the blockers drive the bag 3 yards back. The holder should provide moderate resistance and be point at the postman. Try for 3 reps to each side.
Drop Step – a short slightly backward step with toes at about 45 degrees.
