Agility Drills 3

 In tashatips

Hi, Game Changers! It’s time for Part 3 in our ongoing series of #Tashatips agility drills. They say the third time is the charm, and today’s drills are definitely charming – especially if you love to sweat!

This time, we’re breaking down the 20 Yard Shuttle. It may seem straightforward, but it’s actually a complex drill that helps you work on your acceleration and changing directions. Softball requires quick feet; you’ve got to get from 0 to 60 as quickly as possible, and you may need to shift your path just as fast.

Set your cones or markers 5 yards apart, and follow along with me as we work on:

  • Staying low to the ground
  • Using your legs to power a burst of speed
  • Changing direction smoothly

Whew! Just talking about it is exhausting. Be sure to bring along lots of water when you’re practicing these drills – you’re going to need it!

If you haven’t already done so, click on the link to download my FREE Agility Workout Action Plan, which will take you through all of the drills we’re discussing and show you how to implement them into your routine.

What are your favorite variations on the 20 Yard Shuttle? I’d love to hear about the drills that keep you fast on your feet. Keep changing the game every day, and I’ll see you again soon!
