Find Out Why Agility Ladders, Cones, and Hurdles are Unnecessary for Athletic Performance… And What You SHOULD DO Instead

Speed kills, right? 

If that’s the case, then why are athletes with blazing fast 40 times riding the pine, getting cut from the team, or straight up quitting midseason?

Because they’re stiff, rigid, and they lack fluidity.

Truth is, more linear speed doesn’t necessarily equal better performance in game… Heck, neither does heavier lifting, a higher vertical, or impressive broad jump...
And there’s no point in being fast if you can’t use it in the game… That’s like owning a Lamborghini, but never driving over 40 MPH.

Luckily, there’s a way to transfer your linear speed to your competition. And I’m going to show you how to do it. 

But first, let me introduce myself…
My name is Chris Barnard.

For about a decade I’ve helped athletes of all sports improve their speed, jump higher, grow stronger, and become more athletic.

I've done this by training them directly, and providing free information and workouts on my Overtime Athletes YouTube channel. 

The channel currently hosts over 230,000 subscribers.

And a few years ago, I noticed a large gap between athletes’ speed in the gym and their performance in sport…

It All Started With a New 40 Yard Dash PR…

And ended with a player quitting his college football team…

Here’s What Happened:

At the gym, we have a “Gym Record Board” which keeps track of the heaviest lifts, and the greatest athletic feats that have ever been performed in the gym.
This record board includes heaviest bench and deadlift,

It includes highest hurdle hop,

It also includes the fastest 40 time, among other things…

One day, one of the athletes that I coached brought a friend in.

His name was Mike.

Mike was a running back, and he was pretty fast.
He saw the gym record for fastest 40 time on the gym record board and said:

I can beat that. 

As a man who walks his talk, so naturally, I told him:

Prove it.

Mike set up on the line, I gave him the ready, and he darted off…

He SHATTERED the Gym’s 40 Yard Dash Record…

I thought this kid was destined for big things...

But, that same year, he quit his college football team midseason.

Why?

He got benched.

See, Mike had the linear speed of a Saquon Barkley, Dalvin Cook, or a Christian McCaffrey…

But, he didn’t have the fluidity of these guys.

The footwork, finesse, or quickness.
Mike was fast in a straight line, but as a running back, you need to quickly change directions based on the holes that open up on the field and the positions of the opposing players.

Mike didn’t have the fluidity to do this…

He struggled to juke defenders,

Couldn’t find the holes,

Was easily tackled by the competition,

So he got benched. 

Then he quit…

There’s a lesson here...

Great Weight Room Performances DON’T Guarantee Better Performance

This happens all the time...

Guys lift heavy ass weight,

Jump out of the gym,

Have blazing speed in a closed environment,

But when gametime comes, these athletes are stiff, rigid, and calculated…

And while they may be able to put up impressive numbers in the gym…

Their Stat Sheets Are EMPTY

Athletes need to close this gap…

And to do this, they need to build from the ground up…

This starts with agility…

But Most Agility Drills Suck

At least traditional agility drills…

Whether you’re running through an agility ladder, hopping hurdles, or a combination of the two, the only reason you get faster is because you’re memorizing the movements…

Just like you’d memorize a dance.

Chances are, unless you’re celebrating in the end zone, or basking in the glory of sinking the game-winning shot, you’re not dancing during competition…

So why would you train like it?

You wouldn’t.

Or shouldn’t.

This misunderstood idea of agility training comes from a misunderstanding of the word agility.

Agility is not quickness.

It’s not changing direction,

Or having fast feet…

No…

Simply, it’s change of direction combined with a reaction component.

This reaction component can be visual, or auditory…

But training agility takes a lot more than that…

I’ve Boiled Agility Training Down to Three Simple Steps

#1 Mechanics

Just like you need proper mechanics to run fast,

You need proper mechanics to change directions quickly…

If you don’t have this foundation, you can seriously injure yourself when trying to change directions at high speeds.

More than that...

When you have this base, you’ll be able to change directions fluidly and quickly, because you know how to decelerate, have short ground contact time, and accelerate efficiently.

And even more than that…

You’re learning to place your body in positions to produce more power...

#2 Force Management

To become agile, you need to get a handle on your force…

And because change of direction is so delicate and elaborate, you’ll need multiple tools to manage your force in a way that leads to improved agility….

First, you’ll need a base of force absorption. 

This will help you decelerate efficiently as you can manage high amounts of force without losing it as you slow down.

Then, you’ll need the ability to manage static force.

Transitional force occurs when you’ve come to a full stop, and are about to change directions…

You only need to manage this force for tenths of a second…

#3 Cognitive Conditioning

The last layer of agility has to do with the brain…

And this is what separates actual agility training from brainlessly running through ladders.

In this stage, we want to increase the speed at which your brain processes information and sends a response to your body to perform the action that’s appropriate to the stimulus.

Essentially…

We want to increase your reaction time.

As an example...
If you’re a running back who’s running at a defender, first your brain needs to process that a potential threat is coming,

Then, it sends a signal for your body to take a certain action.

Hopefully, that action is juking the tackler.

This cognitive process can be improved by adding auditory and visual stimuli to change of direction drills…

As well as improving the athlete’s coordination.

This is more than just point and go drills,

Or shouting left and right…

This stage of agility training can get very complex and advanced…

Most “Experts” Don’t Know This

It’s sad...

But, it’s plain to see…

IG coaches and YouTube’s Try-Hard “Trainers” attempt to display their “coaching prowess” by presenting viewers with elaborate ladder drills that require little more than simple memorization.

It’s like everyone forgot what they learned in their Strength and Conditioning textbook…

Or maybe they just didn’t read it…

Either way, I’ve yet to see a coach teach agility the way I do…

And it’s a reason the athletes I work with are reaching unprecedented heights,

Leading their leagues,

Being recognized by colleges,

And reaching other levels of success most athletes can only dream of…

You can join them...

These drills present you with stimulus that can’t be memorized…
And your ability to respond to this stimuli will carry over to your sport.

Whether you’re a football player avoiding tacklers,

A hooper playing lockdown defense,

A baseball player looking to become a better fielder,

Or any other type of athlete….

To Succeed, You’ve Gotta Do the Opposite Of Everyone Else

There’s a story from hundreds of years ago about how Indians killed entire herds of Bison without shooting a single arrow.…

See, bison move in herds,

And their eyes are on the side of their head, so they struggle to see directly in front of them.

When they’re herding, they keep their heads down and follow the leaders of the pack.

Indians figured out a good way to kill a massive amount of bison quickly is to herd them off a cliff.

Once the leaders of the herd start to stampede,

The others mindlessly follow the leaders…

And one by one they plummet off the cliff to shortly become bison burgers.

Most athletes act like these bison.

They’re stuck in the herd mentality.

But, instead of plunging off a cliff to their death, they’re plunging into athletic mediocrity…

With every ladder they rush through,

Every cone they curl around,

Every hurdle they hop…

They’re wasting time they could be using for real agility training that will improve their in-game performance….

Now, you’ve got a decision to make…

Either keep your head down, stay with the herd, and pile into mediocrity…

Or…

Get Game Speed…

Choice is yours…
