We are providing this drill to give you ideas on how to enhance your current practice drills. The idea is not to implement it exactly as is, but rather to tweak it to make it fit your system.
There is sound with the video, so please make sure that your sound is on.
This is a Vimeo video, so you will need to be on a network that does not block Vimeo videos.
