Execution Of The Agility Ladder

Execution Of The Agility Ladder

I pulled this article from the archives because the agility ladder can be a powerful tool for you to utilize in your functional fitness, or strength and conditioning program. When it comes to athletic development you must be capable of sprinting with efficient technique and building on your reaction time. 

The agility ladder can be a powerful tool to train your body for these characteristics. This article outlines a few ways you can go about improving your athleticism and fitness. I think you’ll enjoy it. 

I’m a big a believer in sprinting and sprint variation when it comes to conditioning and training the body for performance. In my experience the key to any successful strength and conditioning program involves moving with intention and purpose. As far as fine tuning the gait movement and working towards building on the skills of coordination and reaction time the agility ladder can be a valuable tool for us to employ to achieve this end.

3 Ways To Develop Functional Speed For Optimal Athleticism

3 Ways to Develop Functional Speed For Optimal Athleticism

Today I wanted to pull this killer article on functional speed direct from my archives for you. I published this article all the way back on July 8th, 2009! It’s hard to believe this one is 9 years old, but I promise the information is still valid.

In fact, it doesn’t matter whether you’re looking to develop a high level of fitness, or looking to compete in a sport you’re going to find this article very useful. Give it a read and apply this to your training and drop me some feedback on your progress in the comment section below the article here.

  1. Are you an athlete looking to develop functional speed for your sport or competitive event? 
  2. Are you interested in learning a new way to condition your body for your HIIT workouts? 
  3. Are you looking to build speed while also learning how to build an athletic body? 
  4. Are you interested in enhancing your reaction time and coordination?  

Are you looking to build functional speed? Functional speed in the context of this article is a fancy way of saying running fast with precision and confidence. We all have wanted to be fast a one time or another and that mindset has certainly not changed in today’s competing athletes. I have spent my entire career working with athletes at all levels of competition to enhance their athleticism and functional speed development. The two main things that most all of these athletes have in common is that they want to be strong and they want to be fast!

Today’s blogisode is all about the gait. I mean as strength coaches we often find ourselves talking about the obvious topic of strength and how to lift heavy objects in the most effective manner, but what about preparation for the zombie apocalypse? I mean at some point in time you’re going to have to be able to move out from under that bar and show off your mobility skills, right?
