The 10-rung speed Ladder is the most simplistic and versatile training tool in the world. The Ladder teaches basic skills to beginners, as well as allowing highly advanced athletes to develop blistering foot speed. This improved foot speed greatly contributes to improved acceleration and change of direction skills.
The speed Ladder is a great tool for athletes because it is good at teaching body control and rhythm. Athletes that develop these skills early on will have a major advantage over their competitors, as they get older.
