Exercises to Increase Agility: Figure 8s


 

Welcome to our health education library. The information shared below is provided to you as an educational and informational source only and is not intended to replace a medical examination or consultation, or medical advice given to you by a physician or medical professional.

This exercise helps to increase your ease and quickness of movement. It copies complex everyday moves. This exercise was chosen for you based on the type of activities you'll be doing.

 Follow a large figure 8 at a slow jog or brisk walk.

 Keep at it for 2-3 minutes. Then reverse directions.

 Gradually decrease the size of the figure 8 and increase your speed and time.

Note: Always stretch before and after exercising. Stop any exercise that causes pain.

 

Figure 8's help you to move around corners and to pivot.
