This article is really interesting. As a newly qualified PT and a semi-pro rugby, the ability to change direction at high speed is essential as I play on the wing. Does anyone recommend any similar exercises that would also benefit the ability of rugby players to step off either leg and change direction at high speed?
Cheers, Mike
