    What exercises/drills can I do in the gym (since the weather up here doesn't make it possible to do drills outside) to increase my agility and explosiveness?

    plyometric training would probably be your best bet

    definitely looks good. would these be best done after at the end of a weightlifting day or at the start of a cardio day?

    i really dunno, i would think that they would go first always since you have to be explosive and fast?

    agility is best trained by playing sports and increasing strength and reactivity. agility drills are stupid IMO.

    fastest/most technical -> slowest/least technical

    therefore jump training would go first

    strength training is still my primary goal. this would merely be a supplement to it.
