  • Each pair backs against each other.
  • Start on the baseline, player on the baseline (attacker) tries to push the player with his back towards him (defender) to the opposite side.
  • Defender must have his back straight and his knees deep, so that the centre of gravity is low.
  • Once on the other side, the players swap roles and go the other way.
