BILATERAL COORDINATION WITH AGILITY LADDER DRILLS
Agility ladder can improve bilateral coordination, how the foot contacts the ground, shin angles, rhythm, body positioning/body control, coordination, foot/lower-leg stiffness, foot speed, and CNS activation – all of which can translate into more effective movement in any sport!
Agility ladder drills challenge the body to adapt to new muscle patterns, improve proprioceptive ability, and enable better footing during athletic performance.
Depending on the drills you choose to work on the agility ladders, you can broaden up the impact of the agility ladder.
In this video, you can see a combo exercise with one of the versions of the lateral knee raises for the dynamic hip mobility, with going over to the other side of the ladder and alternating the leg that does the knee raises.
The second drill shown in the video is specifically designed for work on a bilateral coordination and cross-body movements.
For agility ladder drills to be truly effective, coaches have to challenge their athletes with drills that they are not familiar with, with patterns that sometimes feel unknown and awkward, and with drills that require them to slow down and think about what they are doing.
This was one of the main inspiring ideas that I had when I created my agility ladder video compilation with 102 drills – to present and share some of the more challenging and more unusual agility ladder drills that I use in work with my athletes.
Besides that, the main idea that I had with creating my agility ladder video compilation was to present different drills that are beneficial for improving different cognitive functions.
