Drill WC06/10-P6.1-3T, Touch ball every step with changes of direction

P6.1-3T is an abbreviated version of P6.1 (P6.1 is described in the Sept 1 log entry this page). It involves the ball flipped up and kicked forward approx 4.5 feet on L1; the ball kicked at a 90 degree angle to the right on R2; and the ball kicked into the curtain or to the left on T3. The blue and wiggly line in the graphic represents the curtain.

Drill WC06/10-P6.1-5T, Touch ball every step with changes of direction

P6.1-5T is an abbreviated version of P6.1 (P6.1 is described in the Sept 1 log entry this page). It involves the ball flipped up and kicked forward approx 4.5 feet on L1; the ball kicked at a 90 degree angle to the right on R2; the ball kicked at a 90 degree angle to the left on L3; the ball kicked at a 90 degree angle to the right on R4; the ball kicked at a 90 degree angle to the left on L5. All this is done with the ball off the ground. The blue and wiggly line in the graphic represents the curtain. The gray line represents the wall at the far side of the curtain. The ball is kept close to the body but off the ground the entire time. after a foot kicks the ball, that foot skips (two steps in a row). These skips are the only foot movement allowed between kicks.

Drill WC06/10-P6.1-5T-Reverse, Touch ball every step with changes of direction

P6.1-5T-Reverse is an abbreviated version of P6.1 (P6.1 is described in the Sept 1 log entry this page). It is the reversed, mirror image of P6.1-5T. It involves the ball flipped up and kicked forward with the right foot, approx 4.5 feet on R1; the ball kicked at a 90 degree angle to the left with the left foot on L2; the ball kicked at a 90 degree angle to the right with the right foot on R3; the ball kicked at a 90 degree angle to the left with the left foot on L4; the ball touched on R5. The blue and wiggly line in the graphic represents the curtain. The gray line represents the wall at the far side of the curtain. The ball is kept close to the body but off the ground the entire time. after a foot kicks the ball, that foot skips (two steps in a row). These skips are the only foot movement allowed between kicks.

 Drills P6.1-5T-M, P6.1-5T-Rev-M,   P6.1-5T-M45, & P6.1-5T-Rev-M45,  are described in text and graphic here.

Understanding the table: Stats are for David Virgil Hobbs.  R2 Bod Pos: U=body was in upright position on R2; M=Body in medium crouch position on R2. L1R1 Type:  L=leg power emphasized on L1 or R1 (some patterns start with a left-footed kick,  L1 others start with a right-footed kick, R1); B=body power emphasized on L1. Runs: total number of  L1 R2 runs not counting runs involving bad kicks on L1. Total Score: total number of points awarded to runs,  not counting runs featuring bad kick on L1 (Runs are rates from 0-5 on the basis of the quality of the R2 kick, a 3 being what was considered minimally adequate as of Sept 17 2010, the higher the number the better the R2 kick).  Avg: total score divided by Runs. Bad L1: number of runs involving a kick on L1 inaccurate enough that the kick on R2 is rendered extraordinarily difficult or impossible. % L1 Bad: Bad L1 divided by (Runs + Bad L1 Runs). 

 
Starting  11/5/10: Attempted to get up to 5 touches on each run. Style: AF1=maximize body-force, leg-force, and ankle-force on each run. T5 Runs= number of runs that extended to 5 touches, with footwork and angles correct up to the 5th touch. Pattern: Pattern executed.
 
In R2 Bod Pos Column, U means intent during run is that body be  upright on R2, and on kicks subsequent to R2 also.  M means intent during run is that body be in a medium-level crouched position during R2, and on kicks subsequent to R2 also

P6.1-5t-NS

EARPLUGS in both ears. Quality good; speed very fast (the very fast runs involved ball apexes of ankle height to mid-shin height). Yet again, the number of short runs (approx 12' total distance measured odometer style) was high compared to when I was not keeping track of failed attempts. From a point where there had been 7 successful runs & 3 failures, to a point where there had been 51 successes & 6 failures, a successes/attempts percentage of 94% was achieved.

Woke up approx 4.5 hours prior to start segment. Consumed approx 12 oz double-strength green tea w/ half & half & coconut palm sugar, & 8 oz mango nectar approx 1.5 hours prior to start of practice. Immediately before practice started, drank some water & ate 4/5th of a slice of multigrain bread. During practice, chewed two pieces 4 mg nicotine gum.

The 2.07/minute score is a new personal record for me for 1st segment of practice doing the drill done this segment. This new record is 3.5% better than the previous such record set one day ago, yesterday, May 7.

P6.1-5t-NS

EARPLUGS in both ears. Quality good; speed fast (the runs generally involved ball apexes of approx knee-height). Yet again, the number of short runs (approx 12' total distance measured odometer style) was high compared to when I was not keeping track of failed attempts. From a point where there had been 7 successful runs & 3 failures, to a point where there had been 60 successes & 7 failures, a successes/attempts percentage of 93% was achieved.

The 2.25/minute score is a new personal record for me regardless of whether the segment producing the score was the first segment of the day or not. This new record is 5.1% better than the previous such record set 5 days ago, yesterday, May 3.
