Speed, Agility, Quickness (SAQ) training is a system that involves practising quick movements if the body in a pattern.
Following an injury or surgery, even though pain has gone and rehabilitation has been competed, movement patterns are often dysfunctional.
Elite athletes address this by re-learning the correct movement patterns through a series of drills, so that the body-brain connection starts to fire at peak rates. The neuromuscular system becomes reprogrammed and runs more efficiently, resulting in improved performance.
Benefits of a SAQ programme include:
- Improved sprint times- studies showed an increase in 5m and 10m sprints
- Higher jumps through plyometric training
- More dynamic agility with and without the ball Explosive acceleration
- Quicker and more accurate change of direction
In addition, SAQ programmes have been shown to prevent injury. Recent studies showed they reduced the risk of and Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury by 74-88%.
