Stand-up to Figure 8


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

Stand-up to Figure 8:

A good drill to maintain balance, movement, and function with age. Position a chair in an open area against a fixed support like a wall. Place one cone 5 yards in front of the chair, and a second cone 5 yards further in line with first cone. Begin seated on the chair. Stand up from the chair, as quickly as possible under control, and move forward toward the left of the first cone.

After passing the first cone, continue forward to the right of the second cone. Move around the second cone and weave back around the first cone until you reach the chair in a “figure 8” pattern.

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