Do Ladder Drills Really Help in your Speed Training?

Posted by Claudz on 26th Feb 2020

Agility ladders have always been a part of strength training and conditioning programs for most athletes. Ladder drills help improve your speed, agility, balance, and quickness. Doing a variety of ladder drills helps improve your athletic performance in various sports or activities. But over the years, a lot of athletes and coaches set aside agility ladder training and instead switched to strength and power training, because they think that even though ladder drills improve at athlete's foot speed, it cannot help them plan their strategic move during their actual sport. Even though this is the case, you shouldn't ignore the fact that agility ladders still have an explosive impact when it comes to improving your speed, agility, and quickness. 



In the video below, we show a variety of ladder drills that athletes can do for all types of sports to make the workout more intense, increasing the difficulty with move. What's good about these drills is that they can be performed by athletes of all ages. Doing these drills with our speed and agility ladder will help improve your speed, agility, and strength.
