In this study we aim to demonstrate the fundamental role of proprioceptive training as an integral part of the junior category sports training in the 110 m hurdles. For this we tested, before and after the training period, using proprioceptive techniques and exercises to influence the technique of the hurdle runner at the two subjects chosen for this experiment, and the results obtained revealed the progress achieved by them in within the parameters we considered relevant to the study. The objective of this study is to reveal the importance of proprioceptive training in correcting the technique of hurdle running, but also the parameters that change, and their values. The engine program applied between the initial test and the final test is based on a training optimization adjustment system, focusing on the balance of transition and reassessment of the kinetic sensations from the pushing to the landing, taking into account a series of transformations made during the two tests through which the athlete consciously correct the technical mistakes and improve them.

As a result of proprioceptive training, they have considerably improved their perception of the hurdle and the parameters we need to measure for the progress. The more we develop the proprioceptive capabilities during the junior category, the more likely it is to correct its hurdle runner and acquire a hurdle running technique, closest to the reference model, the world champion in 110 m hurdles.
