List of Agility Ladder Drills

This page provides you with a huge list of agility ladder drills. Agility ladder drills are used by athletes in order to improve their agility, foot speed, balance, lateral movement, coordination, etc. One of the best known agility ladder drills is the Ickey Shuffle. Please contact us if you would like to add more ladder drills to this list.

Many agility ladder drills can be varied further by adding jumping jacks, using resistance bands, carrying a medicine ball, etc. to the routine.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For additional agility drills (i.e. mirror drills and cone drills), please visit the main Martial Arts Agility section.
