How to train Speed and Agility for Football

SPEED & AGILITY TRAINING with cones

Speed and agility training will increase your performance on the football field and give you the athleticism you need to compete at the next level. Every football player, whether a lineman or defensive back, requires good footwork and that is why we put a huge emphasis on agility ladder drills and mini hurdles. These training tools increase your ability to develop fast twitch muscles.

Leg strength can be built over time through weight and sprint training. Cone drills can improve your leg strength and explosion with the load you put into a turn. By sprinting full speed and having to suddenly stop, you put great force on your legs.

Mini hurdles provide a great deal of leg cycle/turnover training. You are forced to bring your heal up, around and down to sprint through the hurdles. This training will increase your stride frequency and improve your foot contact.
