What is SAQ

SAQ workouts consist of short, intense drills that require you to accelerate or decelerate quickly, while moving backward, forward or side-to-side. SAQ improves balance, power and neuromuscular firing patterns so that your movements become fast, dynamic and precise.  You’ll notice improvements in your response time and your ability to change direction lightning fast—as in soccer, tennis, basketball and other sports.

Do You Need SAQ?

If you do sports such as soccer, golf, tennis, netball, or other sports that require quick bursts, you’ll want to listen up. These and many other sports are explosive—and explosive sports must be trained explosively. Whether you are sprinting down the pitch, or cutting back on the courts, there is always a critical moment where you need extra power between the waist and the knees.

What’s more, SAQ training helps protect you from injury when you are trying new sports or adding new challenges to your routine. If you teach your muscles to fire contrary to what they are used to, you will prepare your tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints for the unexpected. SAQ will bulletproof you for the future, so you’ll be less likely to break. Oh, and did we mention SAQ is a whole lot of fun too?
