Speed Kills!

Once we are strong, its important to develop power and speed for athletics.

Plyometrics, jumping, bounding, sprinting, agility drills, med ball throws and other exercises can help us develop more speed and power for our athletes.

*Caution: progressing properly and developing a foundation of strength is vital when using these drills. Proceed with caution.*

There are 3 Main Categories for Speed, Agility and Quickness

  1. Agility/Locomotion – We can run, shuffle, skip and more…these drills will help you develop better body awareness, speed and control as you move.
  2. Jumping – Jumping, landing, leaping, hopping… a variety of drills to develop multidirectional speed and power.
  3. Throwing – Variety of medicine ball drills to teach athletes how to transfer power from the ground up, deliver force, absorb force and repeat explosive efforts.
