Speed, Agility, Quickness (SAQ)

Speed, Agility, Quickness (SAQ)

The SAQ program addresses the speed, agility, and quickness demands of today’s soccer players.

The different types of movement that require speed (and you will train in this program) are: Linear speed, fast footwork, lateral movement, weaving, reactive & change of direction agility, and deceleration & acceleration over short distances.

Genetics pre-determines the ratio of fast-slow twitch muscle fibers in your muscle fiber composition (fast-twitch fibers required for speed). Although your improvements in speed are limited by nature and your genetic makeup, everyone can become faster than they currently are by implementing an effective speed program into their training schedules!
