Drills to Improve Speed, Agility, and Quickness

By Pete Williams

How often do you train for speed, agility, and quickness? Even if you do interval training, you’re not necessarily becoming quicker and more agile, moving in all three planes of motion.

In this video, which we shot for ABC Action News with the help of some of my training group friends, we show two simple drills you can do to improve your “SAQ.” The 5-10-5 drill is a shuttle run that might look familiar if you follow the NFL combine. The box drill incorporates running forward, backward, and laterally, as well as cariocas, which really open the hips.

Try incorporating some SAQ into your routine at least once a week.
