Knowing More About The Illinois Agility Test by FranciscoSmith: 6:43am On Nov 27, 2020
The Illinois agility test is a very specific test to find out one’s agility. You could say it is a more complicated 40-yard dash test. The 40-yard dash tests an American football player’s speed but the Illinois agility test is for something else. Most of the time it is used as a way to test the speed and agility of law enforcement people. In fact, it is used by some police organizations as an actual test to see if the person can become a policeman or not.

How does one perform this agility test

The person has to run at a specific space which is usually measured by 10m long and 5m wide.



There are also cones or obstacles placed on the course.

The test starts with the person lying on the ground with hands behind their back.

When the test begins, the person has to run the left side first and then run back to the start and run through the cones without hitting them in a zig-zag pattern. Then, run through the right side back and forth to complete the test.

The cones must not be hit or else the person fails the test.

The person must also finish the test in the allotted time or else they fail.

Just a few things to consider

While this test is used by some groups to test and check on their people, anybody can do this test. You can call it your own modified version of an Illinois agility run.

Your goal isn’t necessarily to pass a test but to improve your agility. The methodologies of the test itself can be very beneficial for boosting your precision when it comes to running as well as your speed.

You can even do it as a daily exercise routine to get a nice little workout.

This agility test is very distinct and the good thing is that you can do this without even the need to being tested.
