Improve your game with these top 5 pieces of equipment during your speed & agility training.

If you want to excel as an athlete and take your game to the next level, you have to be faster, stronger and more agile than your competition. We all know that individual training will improve your speed & agility performance, but when it comes to the actual training, it can be intimidating to figure out what gear to buy and how to use it.

Here’s a list of our top 5 pieces of equipment to use in your speed & agility training.

1. Jump Rope

An oldie but a goodie—the jump rope is a proven tool for agility, quickness, coordination and just overall athleticism and fitness. While just straight jump roping in intervals of a few minutes at a time will get you results, there are a ton of variations you can try with athletes. And not only does jumping rope improve fitness, jumping rope also strengthens your feet and ankles, which will help with injury prevention.
