We recently conducted one of our Saturday morning training sessions. These sessions are usually sprinkled with a blend of professional (NFL), College (Ohio State, Purdue, Boston College, etc) and High School athletes. Many of these athletes, both men and women, are elite and in exceptional physical condition. Some are trainees under the guidance of Ted Lambrinides PhD, Director of The Workout @Covington in the shadows of Paul Brown Stadium, just across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio. I'll elaborate on this training facility on a future post.
Our training sessions always begin with a Dynamic Warm-up. This would include many or all of the following exercises:
Then, we progress to the real deal.... the heart of the workout. The Interval Training Segment. Don't eat very much at all prior to attending these sessions and bring plenty of chilled sports drinks!!

This training session is best done on a lined football field. A "Gasser" is performed by starting on the sideline, sprinting across the field and touching the opposite sideline with your foot...then returning to the original sideline, touch that line with your foot and then repeat. One Gasser is equal to approximately 213yds of building speed and then decelerating. A Half Gasser is a sprint across the field and then back.
6x full gassers (1280yds)
9x half gassers (960yds)
10x 10yd backward runs (100yds)
3x 200 yd shuttles (down the field and back) 60 secs till next shuttle starts (600yds)
mirror drills...+ 60sec squat
That's all!!! Time to go home.... serious rest may include a nice nap to help the recovery.
