The lateral shuffle is a dynamic warm-up drill that mimics performance in sport. Rest periods can be kept to a minimum in order to challenge the cardiovascular system. For best results keep a low center of gravity. This exercise requires the hips and hamstrings to decelerate before alternating directions. Deceleration is a common cause of many sport-specific injuries. Perform the lateral shuffle for added agility and quickness.


  • Stand in an “athletic stance” by bending your hips and knees, keeping the chest up.
  • Keep a low center of gravity throughout.
  • Quickly shuffle sideway for about 4 steps and immediately return with the same amount of steps.


  • Dragging the feet
  • Hunching
  • Slow, lazy movement
