Uncoordinated Athletes Are Slower Athletes

Posted Dec 29 2008 4:46pm
It is difficult to train your body to move faster if you are uncoordinated....the central nervous system can be trained to make the body move more efficiently and faster. But, in order for this to happen, you must train efficiently and faster during workouts and practices.

Just as you must train fast (with correct running mechanics ) to get faster, you must also correctly do agility drills to improve your coordination. Improving your coordination will help improve your multi-directional speed and linear speed (straight-ahead speed). A player rarely reaches maximum speed during game competition. Having great change-of-direction speed (agility with quickness) allows you to beat your opponent "to the spot" or recover from mistakes in positioning.

Agility ladder drills are a good way to improve your coordination and hip action. "Sports Fitness Hut's Hips and Glutes Training Guide For Athletes" will show you what you should be doing to improve your agility and change-of-direction speed. Cone drills are used to teach movements that are more like game situations.

You can do agility ladder drills everyday during warmup to perfect your form. From there, you can progress to doing these drills full speed with great coordination. This will make you a better, faster athlete!

Train hard and smart!
