Athletes love the ability to run fast without losing balance. Many believe that speed is a god-gift, however you can develop speed and agility by single-mindedly training using speed agility equipments. By doing these exercises you can develop your agility skills. Agility is more crucial than speed as it is the ability of an athlete to move quickly from side to side or change direction swiftly while running at a fast speed.
Check out these agility exercises.
- Cone Taps: Do high knees by placing a cone in front of you. Also, you have to tap the cone with the raised foot. You just have to gently tap the top and not knock it down. This exercise helps in getting strong feet and ankles; it also helps in building agility.
- Zig-Zag Cone Exercise: Keep 5-10 cones in a zig-zag formation and space them out about 6 feet. Also, the cone should be placed 45 degrees from the other. Start out by running toward the first cone to run around it. As soon as you reach the cone get ready to shift your weight and getting lower to the ground.
- Lateral Hurdle Jumps: You can use GSI’s cone or small hurdles for this particular exercise. Take a cone or small hurdle and keep it next to you.
