Here’s a nice training video with some on-field fitness training with FC Bayern. The video shows what I would consider appropriate use of ladders, mini-hurdles, and resisted harnesses. All to often these ‘tools’ are used by fitness coaches inappropriately in an attempt to introduce something novel (i.e. gimmicky) or interesting. In these cases the intensities employed are often far too low to reach a stimulus threshold for beneficial adaptation. What you see here though is the use of those same tools to enhance training by overloading force output and stability demands.
