Carioca quick step

The carioca quick step is a lateral bodyweight exercise targeting the adductors but also promoting agility and overall conditioning. It’s a favorite of football players, particularly defensive backs, because it mimics the way they have to track wide receivers downfield. It can also help mobilize the hips for athletes and lifters of all ability levels.


  1. Sport-specific training for football and other sports heavy on lateral movement
  2. Trains hips beyond normal planes of motion
  3. Burns calories and raises core body temperature
  4. Pairs well with other dynamic warm-ups in a circuit
