Purpose: Examine the relationship between squat 1-RM and basketball-relevant tests and variables that influence agility (T-test) in elite male professional basketball players.

Conclusions: Squat 1-RM was significantly related to 5-, 10-, and 30-meter sprint times, and body fat was the best single predictor factor of agility.

IN PLAIN ENGLISH: To improve the ability to run fast and be agile, increase leg strength and decrease body fat percentage if over-weight.
