Session 3: SAQ (Speed - Agility - Quickness)

Step-by-Step:

1. Five Burpees or push-ups, depending on level of strength. ⠀

2. One-touch pass, and one step per ladder. Make sure to lift your knees high and move your arms at the same time. ⠀

3. Three short passes + number 8 zig zag without ball. Short & quick steps are better than longer steps.

4. Zig-Zag with ball. Use both feet in an “outside-inside” way. ⠀

5. Bounce pass + both feet jump. After that, place a channel of cones. Step beside every cone with the foot of that side of the channel. Ex: if the cone is on the right side, step with your right foot beside it. ⠀

6. Two side air passes + quick sprint to beat the defender. Finish and CELEBRATE! ⠀

Details:

  • Duration: As fast as possible. ⠀⠀
  • Rounds: 7 in total. ⠀⠀
  • Resting time: 1 min after each round.
