After reading this great text, myself and another coach tried a few exercises with our rugby team at training and the improvements were visible - you or your players can go faster and be more agile with the right training. I'd recomend this text to anybody who wants to take their team to the next level. I've now passed this book on to a colleague who teaches a junior girls football team who continually tells me she loves it too.

I've heard there is a video that accompanies this book which I intend to check out!

4.0 out of 5 stars great all round workout 20 May 2001
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
after seen SAQ in action, i thought a book could not offer any more, i was wrong. This book is full of useful, practical and informative exercises. The sections are broken down and diagrams show what to do whilst the information provided fills in any blanks! It also offer alternatives to tax even the most fittest of trainers. Great exercises to add to your circuit class with expensive equipment!
It also includes some tests and example programs to get you started

5.0 out of 5 stars great ideas 18 Oct 2010
I was going to give this book 4 stars which came up with I like it, but actually I love it and now dip in to it every week to help with ideas for keeping training fresh and progressive. I particularly like the dvd that shows many of the drills, although the written explanations are good the dvd ensures correct proceedure. The only thing that would make this better is detailing the strengthening tests required and to what level to then use saq drills. Other than that I think its a really good tool to aid training - s&c
