Agility Ladder – beginners guide

 

Welcome to a beginners guide to using the agility ladder!

The ladder is commonly used to improve –

  • foot speed
  • lateral and linear move movement
  • overall agility
  • jumping ability
  • cardiovascular capacity

Try the simple drills in the video above, take it slow at first if you struggle to get the footwork right, and as you get more comfortable, increase your speed.

Try each drill one after another as a circuit, and don’t stop between each drill to keep your heart rate up and get a good sweat going.

To challenge yourself more, try these drills… backwards!

Next week we move to more advanced drills.
