Agility Ladder Time
One of my favorite go to additions to my workout is the agility ladder. As the weeks go by my coordination, speed and balance has increased immensely. I'm quicker on my feet, able to run a little longer and able to move my body direction faster and proper compared to months ago.
I wasn't very quick on my feet carrying extra weight and I was looking to increase my agility when working out. My workouts consist of many types of drills as I'm not a big fan of fitness machines my personal preference.
I knew increasing my agility would give me a better workout all around from all stand points. Working with the agility ladder has given me the ability to move quicker on my feet during cardio and drills. I love this little ladder!
