Balloon Agility


The Agility is the ability to change direction (COD) rapidly, which improves both game-specific movement and fitness simultaneously.

Balloon Agility:

A great drill I recommend in my book, Body Plan for Kids, to do with your children or grandchildren. The drill promotes teamwork.

Either alone or with a partner, hit two balloons above you – keeping them in the air for 20 to 30 seconds. Try hitting them in order based on color – like blue first then red – keeping both in the air. If you’re alone, try using one balloon and while it’s in the air, perform 5 jumping jacks.

Remember to check with your physician before you attempt to try my exercise plan or any other for the first time.
