Video Transcript: SAIDIA RAFEL: "Now we're going to step it up a notch and get moving from walking drills to skipping drills. Before I get started showing you some great hurdle action I'm going to take a swig of my Aquafina to stay hydrated. It's very important that when you're working out, any type of exercise, that you keep a trusted bottle of a power drinks or water to the side. I personally like to drink water during the workout and then drink PowerAde, Gatorade after the workout to get those electrolytes back into my system. Stay hydrated. It's very important and it will help you have an excellent, efficient and fun workout. What I'm going to do is demonstrate some skipping drills. We're going to do over the side, left leg lead, my right leg trail leg, and then I'm going to do some skipping over the top. How I place the hurdles is, I did it 6 feet apart. The way to measure your 6 feet is simply one foot in front of the other starting from the edge of the hurdle, like this. Put one foot in front of the other. That's how I measured it. Just to show you, one, two, three, four, five, six. Then do it again at this point. One, two, three, four, five, six. Measure it that way and then you'll have your spacing for the hurdles. We're going to jump up and I'll show you how to do some skipping drills."
