PhD student and a lifetime sports enthusiast.

I have tried a large variety of ball sports, and have took training in basketball, football and tennis. Actively participate in a wide variety of sports, on a regular basis, given that the work or injuries don't interfere.

In addition to basketball and football, I play a variety of racket sports such as squash, badminton and table tennis; beach volley, futsal. I also try and follow rugby, american football, handball and track running (sprinters).

@IvoFlipse: I guess that's as good an answer as this question will get, I think you should formulate your comment as an answer.

Interesting angle, I'll see what I can do about that. Although I think the anticipation is usually not the problem, I feel. I am usually pretty good in reading the game, which is why it's really annoying to be slow in reaction time, because I usually can see it (e.g. dribble) coming

Well if I knew some I wouldn't have asked the question here, would I? :) The reason why I made that remark is that the gym over here are typically pretty crowded/densely packed with machines and such. So putting cones and doing intervals in between is simply not possible. But I'll try out some of these exercises outdoors, if I can find some of the equipment like cones or ladders.

@DaveLiepmann In that case, as in with your definition, I am very skeptical about being strong will make you faster/quicker. There are lots of people who spend their days at the gym and look pretty much like meat-mountains. I don't anyone of them have any agility, even though they might be able to bench twice their weight etc.

Thanks for the tips but not sure if those are drills I can do at home or at a local gym.

Interesting... It looks fun and extremely tough at the same time. But primarily based on how they look in the video, I'd say it has a very suitable name :)

Well I suppose it depends on what you mean by strong. I'm usually very stable on foot, I do not get tackled easily in football for instance. I used to have good reflexes (while weighing about as much as I do now) but the time spent without proper training has slowed me down significantly.
