Best Drills To Improve Quick Feet


Recommended Posts

I'd like to be able to change direction quicker, as I am playing Semi Pro Football now. I'm more of a contact oriented runner, but changing direction is a good dimension to add for some situations.

So, I know of the following:

Dot Drills: jumping back and forth as quickly as you can, on 2 feet then on 1 foot

Ladder Drills: Putting 2 feet between a flat "ladder" and running through it as quickly as you can

Stair Running: running up stairs putting 2 feet on each star as quickly as you can

Cut Backs: Running about 8 feet one way, cutting back in the other direction, and repeat

Of the 4 I listed, which ones would be most effective. Also, I'd like some ideas on new drills I could do.

What is a semi pro football player? College?

I dont think the NFL has a minor league

You've never heard of semi-pro football? Basically, all over the country there are a bunch of adult leagues for real football(meaning not flag). The league I play in has a lot of ex college players, one team actually has an ex-NFL player, a former 3rd string D-Lineman for the Giants. A few guys have gone on to play in the CFL that have played in it as well.

Dot drills work great. We use to do them in high school and college

Yeah, we did them in high school as well. Not regularly enough to have them improve anything though.

Do some running drills backwards. Works the muscles differently and helps improve your balance.

Balance I can understand, but how does that help changing direction?
