Cone Agility Drills
Cone Agility Drills imitate a more realistic situation in sports wher multi-directional changes occur constantly. These drills are most beneficial when starting fresh and not immediately following a hard lifting session. When performing cone drills, you want to assume a natural athletic stance. Because of the constant directional changes, it is important to remember to keep your center of gravity (hips) low. The lower your center of gravity, the easier it will be to change direction. This is especially important when changing from forward to backward movement, and vice versa. As you anticipate a change coming, remember to get your hips low to be able to drive your body towards the direction required. In keeping your center of gravity under control, you are teaching your body a new and very functional habit.
