Stick the landing, then place your hands back inside the same squares of the agility ladder, hop both feet back, then move your feet laterally and place your hands inside the next squares of the agility ladder. This will really help improve your explosiveness. Repeat for 30 seconds as you make your way down the agility ladder. If you make it to the end of the agility ladder, reverse your way back to the other side. Good job.

That’s the first circuit

Awesome job.

Rest for 60 seconds and then complete 2 more circuits, for a total of 3 circuits.

At this point you should:
