Get Faster Feet With Short Acceleration Drills
To get faster feet athletes will need to actively think about moving their feet, and legs faster, while performing speed and agility drills. To put an extra emphasis on the speed of the feet, and to avoid over fatiguing the legs, athletes should be sure to incorporate get faster feet drills that use short distances when completing repetitions.

Get Faster Feet With The Suicide Circles Drill
The Kbands Suicide Circles Drill is a great way to get faster feet for athletes. Athletes will move between 7 different Speed and Agility Cones while wearing Kbands Leg Resistance Bands.
To start the Suicide Circles Drill To Get Faster Feet athletes will attach the Kbands Leg Resistance Bands securely, just above the knees. Athletes will place one of the Speed and Agility Cones in an open area and place the remaining 6 Speed and Agility Cones in a circle around, and 3-5 yards away from the starting Speed and Agility Cone.
To begin the Suicide Circle Sprints athletes will start at the center Speed and Agility Cone and move laterally toward one of the outside Speed and Agility Cones. After reaching the Speed and Agility Cone athletes will quickly work back to the center of the get faster feet drill. Athletes will repeat this back and forth lateral shuffle all the way around the get faster feet cone set up. Once athletes reach the final Speed and Agility Cone they will take a short 25-30 second rest before moving back through the get faster feet cone circle in the opposite direction.
Moving back and forth through the Speed and Agility Circle counts as one set. Athletes will perform 6 resisted sets of the Suicide Circles Drill To Get Faster Feet, before removing the Kbands Leg Resistance Bands and performing 1 unresisted set of the get faster feet drill.
Get Faster Feet With A Good Tempo
As athletes move through the Suicide Circles Drill athletes should be thinking about how they can get faster feet. Really accelerating the feet and legs through the get faster feet drill is the most efficient way to get the bodies fast twitch muscle fibers engaged and trained to make athletes quicker, more agile, and explosive.
The use of Kbands Leg Resistance Bands with the short lateral shuffles makes those targeted muscles work harder with each explosive lateral movement. However, to continue to get faster feet athletes will need to make sure they are using good running form throughout the Suicide Circles Drill To Get Faster Feet. Athletes who allow their knees to roll to the inside will be less efficient, and less powerful with their movements, along with putting un-needed stress on the knees, hips, and ankles. Working off the balls of the feet and continually to think about how to get faster feet will allow athletes to see the increase change of direction, speed, and agility.
It is even more important for athletes to think about moving the feet quicker to get faster feet during unresisted sets of the Suicide Circles Drill. Unresisted sets are a great way to get faster feet by training the extra muscles fibers which have been activated during the resisted sets of the get faster feet drill.
Athletes should also limit the amount of time between sets. If athletes are performing the get faster feet drill on their own then they should be taking 25-30 seconds of rest between sets. Athletes who are performing the Suicide Circles To Get Faster Feet with 1-2 additional athletes (2-3 athletes total) will use their partners’ active sets as their rest periods, continually moving athletes through the Suicide Circles until all sets have been completed. Athletes who perform the Suicide Circles Drill To Get Faster Feet with more than 3 athletes need to set up an additional Speed and Agility Cones.
Get Faster Feet With Advanced Drills
In order to continue to advance and get faster feet, and legs, athletes need to use different Speed and Agility Cone Drills and resisted exercises to challenge athletes skills at different speeds and intensities.
Performing similar drills that focus on getting faster feet should include things like the Pro Agility, Wall Runs, and Victory Rope Exercises. Athletes who wish to focus more on maximum linear sprinting speed can get faster feet by performing speed and agility drills with the Kbands Speed Parachute. Additional training drills to get faster feet performed with the Speed and Agility Cones, Kbands Leg Resistance Bands, and Victory Ropes will allow athletes to train, and progress their multi directional movements.
In order to determine the volume of training athlete should be doing to get faster feet and increase speed will depend on the athletes’ sport. Athletes who participate in sports like volleyball, tennis, and football will need to spend more time practicing these small, short, reactionary movements to help improve sports specific movements.
Athletes who participate in sports like football, soccer, lacrosse, and basketball should still put an emphasis on these shorter get faster feet movements, but will also want to put an emphasis on their ability to quickly reach their maximum sprinting speed.
For these reasons it is important for coaches and players to plan out their training and taking a few factors into consideration when they organize their training sessions to get faster feet. First, athletes need to look at the specific movements they repetitively perform during a game or match. Second, athletes and coaches need to look at those sports specific skills and see which skills the athlete can most improve on. Athletes will get faster feet when they stay consistent with the skills they already have mastered and advance at new skills in their arsenal.
