Speed and agility

15th May 2015

A lot of people have asked for tips on building speed and agility over the last weeks as a lot sports have finished for the season now. I still see a lot of people doing the same old 60metres or so sprints over a set number of sets and then doing lots of jumping over hurdles etc. this works to a very small degree. But first you need to iron out structural imbalances in the body. Work on getting you’re posture correct.

A example of a session I did with a client this week, who is in pre-season now Myofascia release on certain points of the body, then working on corrective exercises over a set time.

Then the work out:

Prowler march 8 rounds 20metres
Falling start 8 rounds 20metres
Backward med ball throw 5reps 5 rounds
Box jumps onto two tires which creates an unstable base, which makes you work harder.
5reps 5 rounds.
