Straight Line Exercises
Three Turns
Quick, Shallow and Dynamic
Slow and Easy with Deep Lean
If these exercises are skated at a slow tempo and with a fair amount of curve they can be a 3-brackets but with speed  they are most often performed as 2 rockers.

Counters and Rockers
This shape of exercise works for all counters and rockers.
This shape of exercise can also be performed with a FI, FO or BI start.
Below is a very tiny taste of the hundreds of combinations of edges and turns that are possible. Just a few basic exercises are shown to get you started. A more comprehensive guide to choosing and using drills is available through a 101 Drills seminar.
