Gaining the agility for football drills is needed for lateral movement, quick footwork, and maintain your balance. In order to fit this criteria, lazing around will not be accepted. Doing dynamic warm-ups is the most important way to get better with a day of rest between conditioning sessions.
The three main objectives of doing football drills are:
- To Increase ability to perform short bursts of speed.
- To Make a quick stop while running at full speed.
- To Increase length of time or distance a player can run.
The longer the distances, the shorter the repetition there should be in each session.
One way to improve your footwork is to work with cone drills. Doing small, choppy steps through and around the cones will allow for a good center of balance and quick changes in direction.This an excellent drill to help improve foot quickness. Arm movement is also vital to be in sync with your knee drive, but this isn’t correlated to your speed.
Zig-Zag as well as other are common football drills where you place markers 45 degrees apart from each other in either direction, extending the distance as with every marker you place. The goal is to either loop around or to just sharply change directions.
These agility drills take football conditioning to the next level, with complex drills and swift movements. It does take a bit of time to get acclimated with these rigorous procedures, so it’s recommended to start off slow and then try to perform more repetitions as you progress.
