SPEED AND AGILITY DEVELOPMENT Lateral and Linear Speed
Speed is an important component of athletic success. The ability to move quickly in a linear or lateral direction can give athletes the edge they need to win. However, developing speed is not always easy. It requires a combination of strength, power, and coordination. Speed training programs are designed to help athletes improve their linear and lateral speed. These programs often include exercises that improve explosive power, such as sprints and plyometrics. They may also include resisted sprints, which help to build strength and power. Speed training can be challenging, but it can pay off in terms of improved performance on the field or court.
