Ever wonder what it would be like to be faster and more agile? If you have ever been beaten in a race, agility equipment may be for you. If you are seeking to gain speed and agility in your everyday life, there is a wealth of agility equipment out there for you. When you think of agility equipment, think of a boot camp obstacle course. They have ladders, tires, ropes, and various other obstacles. Your own agility setup should be similar. The first piece of agility equipment you should purchase should be a ladder. This has two distinct functions; the first is to climb with and the second is to build up speed. Climbing exercises help to build up your upper body strength. If you lack vertical space, place your ladder horizontal. This creates an area for you to practice your footwork. Weave in and out of the agility equipment as fast as you can manage. Over time this will help build up your lower body strength and quickness.
Using agility equipment with friends and family is a great way to get in shape. Some agility equipment is built for two people, such as resistance bands. This piece of equipment consists of a harness connected to a bungee cord. One person wears the harness, while the other puts all their weight against the piece of agility equipment. This exercise helps improve your flexibility and overall strength.
Don't worry if you don't have a huge budget to build your agility setup. Many pieces can be created with ordinary equipment found around your home. Perhaps one of the cheapest things that you can set up is the tire obstacle. Contact your local junk yard and tell them that you are looking for tires to set up some agility equipment. Set them up in a pattern in your back yard and start working out. This is the same concept as the ladder exercise, but is a bit tougher to maneuver around. With some practice you should be able to win any race you compete in!
