Agility and Quickness

What Kind of Agility Training Equipment Do I Need?
That really depends on what you are aiming to achieve, but having fast, powerful feet and legs is a good place to start for most sports. The tools available at Power Systems help you practice by training your legs to avoid obstacles, while building lower body strength and increasing quickness as you do change direction.
Cutting action, which is the ability to change direction rapidly while in motion, requires great strength in your legs and hips in order to push off in another direction while already running such as when avoiding a tackle or when incorrectly anticipating the direction of a ball. Jumping and changing direction mid-air, as in basketball, is very similar. Many athletes find agility equipment such as ladder and hurdles an invaluable tool to create powerful cutting action.
Having quick moving feet is another asset in many sports, and is yet another piece involved in effective cutting action. Ladder drills, agility rings, steps and other pieces of agility training equipment work to improve the quickness in the movement of your feet. Try fast drills forward, backward and laterally to increase speed in your feet. To achieve fast, agile legs and feet, you have to work and you have to work hard. Developing agility and quickness is no easy feat, but the agility training equipment offered here at Power Systems can help you get there.
