Share this post

Get faster on your feet by practicing this agility drill. Agility is your ability to change direction or body position quickly and effectively. 

To Start: place tape down in a "t" or cross form creating 4 quadrants. You will start in one quadrant (does not matter which one). 
With both legs, jump forward without brushing the tape and into the front quadrant. Then jump back. Next jump to the diagonal quadrant, then jump back. Finally jump to the side quadrant and return back. You can practice this exercise in 30 seconds bouts. 2-3 times. 
To progress: Perform this same exercise but with one leg. Make sure to practice on both sides.
