4 Week Speed and Agility Program
One of the most common programs we get asked for would have to be speed and agility.
Truth be told, running through ladders and sidestepping through come drills will only get you so far.
Agility is basically how quickly you can change from eccentric to concentric contraction. To do this effectively you need to be strong. Building strength happens in the gym, not on the field.
That’s not to say that speed and agility training is a waste of time, because it’s not. However, if you were to prioritize training in the gym over training with ladders, you would see a better return on your investment.
If we do opt for a speed and agility program outside of the gym, here is one way you can program for it (click the exercise name for a full description of how to perform the movement):
