Here is some advice on how to improve foot quickness.
Powerful Speed & Acceleration Exercise #3: Power Speed Drills
Power speed drills simply take skips and high knees and incorporate a light weighted object, such as a medicine ball.
- Hold the ball (between 6 and 12 lbs) while performing skips and high knees. Focus on the foot landing quickly from the ground. Perform 3-5 reps for 20 yards and rest about 1-2 minutes between each rep.
Powerful Speed & Acceleration Exercise #4: Power Agility Ladder
Power agility ladders take the “power” concept above and incorporate them into ladder drills.
- You can choose any drills and keep the focus on the foot moving quickly off the ground.
