Ja Morant Workout for Agility and Quickness

Ja’s Secret Tool for Success

Ja Morant is well known for violently pisterizing players. But, he’s also second to none in agility.

Ja Morant has the quickness to slice through defenders. He has the ability to quickly read the floor and react appropriately. And he’s incredibly crafty on defense.

All of this comes from Ja Morant’s agility.

Agility is what gives you, and Ja, the ability to make plays.

And every athlete could use more of it.

That’s why I’ve decided to hit you with a Ja Morant Workout for agility and quickness, to show you how you can get your quickness, reactions, and instincts to Ja’s level…

And hopefully…

Increase your playmaking ability on the court, field, or wherever else.

Let’s get into this Ja Morant workout for agility and quickness…

What is Agility?

Most people have it wrong when it comes to agility. When they hear the word agility, they think of ladders, or cones.

That’s wrong.

Simply, agility is change of direction with a reaction component. Yes, feet quickness, and lateral speed are part of agility…

But agility is not agility without a cognitive component.

For a concrete example of agility in action, check out this Ja Morant play:

You see Ja Morant shuffles laterally to stay with Kyrie Irving. He doesn’t bite on the pump fake and reacts appropriately to block the shot.

Here’s another display of agility:

Here, you see Morant making a move towards the basket. As the help defender approaches, Morant makes a move laterally to create an angle to the cup. He finished with grace.

Almost every single one of Morants highlights include some aspect of agility. But the point is, agility plays a huge role in Ja Morant’s success.

It can do the same for you too.

Lifting Weights Sucks Unless You Have This Skill

I’ve seen weak, slower players get time over faster and stronger athletes.



Agility is the link between the weight room and the court or field.

Ja has it. And truth be told, he may not be he most athletic guy in the leg. There might be guys who can jump higher and sprint faster than him riding the bench…

But he’s got fluidity and agility.
