Lateral Hopping for Time

Lateral hopping for time is a movement that tests side to side control, lower leg conditioning, and performance between legs.

The movement is completed by hopping back and forth for 30 seconds between two objects (cones) or lines placed on the floor 40 cm apart. Counting each successful repetition, compare performance between sides.

Ideally, athletes are able to complete the movement with no less than 95% symmetry between sides.

This test is important for field athletes, runners, and others as it evaluates traits associated with these activities.
