Kaitlyn’s Speed Ladder Drill

SweatTheStyle_KaitlynFitzpatrick_12We all get bored with our workout routines from time to time. It’s important to change it up and challenge yourself by trying something new. Your body will thank you for it. The Speed Ladder Drill is traditionally used for soccer training but the benefits apply to everyone. The purpose of this drill is to improve footwork which will increase quickness, agility, and coordination.

SweatTheStyle_KaitlynFitzpatrick_8Focus on form and then increase speed. Weave feet in and out of the ladder before moving forward. Push off the balls of your feet (not the toes), pump your hands from shoulder height to hips, keep your elbows at 90 degrees. Don’t forget to keep your body relaxed, straight, and always look forward.
Be sure to warm up with a short jog and a stretch.
