EP.10 - Agility Ladders. Good or Bad?

Podcast (8 Minutes) - Agility is an often misunderstood topic, in this episode we cover the most important principles regarding effective agility training

We discuss:
- Agility (speed) ladders and their appropriate/inappropriate use
- The differences between foot speed training and change of direction
- Why the fancy drills we see on the internet may not be as effective as most people think.

 
 

Here are some of the videos we spoke about in the episode:
