Ty Terrell is one of the most “in the trenches” trainers that I know. He’s had experience coaching in the weight room, coaching basketball, and running speed & agility courses. He got his start in the fitness industry working under the great Lee Taft.

This guy knows a thing or two about athleticism, so when he talks, I listen.

I was able to get Ty to sit down for a question and answer session with us. I’ve repackaged this half hour conversation to make it flow better for you listeners out there.

Topics addressed include…

  1. Speed and agility periodization for a basketball player. (0:09)
  2. The basic speed and agility movements everyone needs to be able to perform well. (02:47)
  3. How to determine the appropriate height for an athletic stance. HINT: you don’t just “get low”. (05:20)
  4. Why sport-specific speed and agility training in the gym is a myth. (08:33)
  5. Why sport-specific speed and agility training in the gym is NOT a myth. (09:49)
  6. When to fix an athlete’s natural movement pattern. (13:26)
  7. Speed and agility work for baseball players. (17:14)
  8. A better term for “speed and agility”. (21:06)
  9. Using the weight room to develop speed and agility. (21:48)
  10. How to train speed and agility in professional athletes. (28:51)
