70 Speed, Agility, and Quickness

Speed, Agility, and Quickness (SAQ) are important for performance development. By developing speed, agility, and quickness an individual will enhance their ability to accelerate, decelerate, and stabilize their body through that movement. This ability may sound familiar to other types of performance development that we have discussed previously as we have learned about force production, force reduction, and stabilizing through the body during movement. These are all essential components of exercise and sport performance.
