"Base-ball diamonds provide space to work out on surfaces that are easy on the joints," he says. Odgers, a conditioning coach for Ivan Rodriguez and other clients of agent Scott Boras, created this fat-burning workout to help you improve your agility for any sport.

After completing the moves, devote some time to your footwork and try bench stepups. Stepups "help improve quick starts and stops," Odgers says.

Do three sets of 10 reps, then switch legs and repeat.
