Agility is your ability to transition quickly from one movement to another. The more agile you are, the faster you can change directions (horizontally, vertically, or laterally).

Skill Building

Best practices to build your agility is to practice quick movement exercises that requires you to change direction constantly and (to add on top of) unpredictably.

Benefit

You can use are agility to move at different directions faster as well as perform faster reaction timing. Plenty of sports require a lot of agility training in order to be able to maneuver around obstacles. You will need agility to move quickly when you need to move from one place to another in a short amount of time.

Avoid

  • Avoid not training. Training and doing drills helps to increase your agility and if you skip this, it can decrease your agility.
  • Avoid linear or simple exercises. It only focuses on simple movements rather then requiring you to move in multiple directions.

Life Improvements

  • You’ll be able to change directions quickly and better avoid obstacles that get in your way. 
  • You’ll have better alignment and posture when during movements. You’ll have better body placement than your peers when doing drills.
