S2 Episode 1 | Smart Speed and Power Training with Mike Young

A key factor for the development of change of direction ability and agility performance are the tests you put in place for your athletes. Correct test selection for your athlete can be crucial for their agility and change of direction development; each sport will require a different output from your athlete. In this episode, Coach Young discusses the 5-0-5, 5-10-5 and Y agility tests and provides guidelines and examples of how to run these drills.
