Cut-Up drill – triple cut (Raptor Resist)

The concept is to cut at designated cones, yard markers or visual / verbal commands. The first cut is about a 45deg angle. On the second cut – try to angle back in to the start lane. Then the third cut is straight up field in that start lane. In the video shown, it’s a very challenging triple Cut-up: 45deg angles at 5-7 yard markers for the cut. If the client isn’t strong enough to project the body back into the start lane off of the second cut, then increase the distance of when to get back to the start lane (hence, making the angle bigger and less challenging).
