Players begin by standing on one side of the agility ladder. Step into the first square with one foot. Their opposite foot should enter immediately after. As the second foot enters the square, the leading leg (the one you started with initially) should move laterally outside of the square. Plant the outside leg in a manner that allows to move laterally into the next square. Advance your way down the ladder by alternating between the inside and outside feet.
