Reactive Speed Ladder Drills

Just a quick one today... Instead of your normal ladder drills, try using the ladder with either voice or directional cues.

Start down the ladder performaing a pattern, lets say the Ickey Shuffle, as you are progressing down the ladder doing the pattern your coach or training partner will say or point backwards.

Then perform the Icky shuffle backwards. then he will give a forward command and so on.
Try to have a clean transition witht he feet when changing from front to back, continue this for 15-20 sec. and tray three sets per pattern.

This is a very dynamic drill that you can do almost anywhere.

If you don't have a speed ladder yet, check out my Speed Tools Ladder ( This is the ladder that all my guys train on down here.
