FLAT out Fun

A great piece of exercise equipment for quick foot agility workout is the agility ladder. It is one of my all time favorite training tools. Not only is it FLAT out fun, it is easily transportable and can be used for all ages and levels to improve and increase basic running and movement skills.

While training with the agility ladder I have noticed improvement in my mobility, flexibility and core strength.

Here are a few great drills you can do with the agility ladder:

Sprint several yards after each ladder exercise and jog back to the beginning

5 Reps of each exercise – 1 set

Rest 60 seconds

Repeat x3


Quick Skips

Skip straight ahead as fast as you can

Hopscotch

Moving laterally, take two steps in each square and two out as you move

down the ladder.

Lateral Crossover skips

Skip laterally as fast as possible.

Emphasize extremely fast hip. Cross over with each right, then switch

Icky Shuffle

Using 2 feet in, 1 foot out,

Get the rhythm “ in – in – out “, “in – in – out” as you zig zag through the ladder

Right foot steps out only on the right side and left on the left.
