Athleticism is high speed multidirectional movement. Many people use the term agility for this type of training and it is very popular in field sports such as football, soccer, lacrosse, and basketball.


We don’t assess athleticism as the required tools for accurate assessments are not easily available. That being said it is a good training methodology for any athlete.


Athleticism is all about quality, so don’t expect the same “Oh my god, I am going to die” feeling as you get when doing a hard work capacity efforts.


Make sure that you are warmed up properly and ease into these efforts before going all out. The older you are, the more you need to ease into these.


Don’t hurt yourself – you’re not 16 anymore,
