Key Points:

1 - Jump, Switch, Forward

2 - Toes

3 - Small Positive Lean

4 - Medium Pace

5 - Full Pace


Exercise to Practice:

An exercise to practice is 3 reps of the scissors leading with your dominant foot followed by 3 reps of the scissors leading with your non dominant foot. Have an explosion sprint to an end cone for all reps.

You will need 11 cones. 10 cones for your ladder and 1 cone for your end sprint. If you have a speed ladder, awesome! Use it. If you don’t, use cones or draw a ladder on concrete using sidewalk chalk. Duct tape on concrete also works for a speed ladder!

To increase your focus on getting faster sprint a few yards after the ladder to work on your explosion. Being fast over five yards helps!

Do your reps of the scissors with a very light jog back. Ladder drills are not meant to be crazy fitness drills. So have a very light jog back to catch your breath before you go all out again.

The ladder drill should be fast, the recovery jog should be slow; not a sprint.


What’s Wrong:

If you are struggling to get your feet in rhythm you are going too fast. Slow down, get use to how the scissors feels and then speed up. Start slow to learn how to go fast!


Bonus Tip!

Pump your arms! Pumping your arms make your feet go faster! Seriously, the faster your arms move the faster your feet go!
