Anaerobic Football Specific Conditioning

This time of the offseason you should be pushing your anaerobic conditioning in preparation for the upcoming season. Let's be honest, no one enjoys this type of training but it needs to be done. The more anaerobic work you perform in the off-season the easier those two a days will be and the faster you will be able to recover.

Short duration sprints with football specific rest intervals should be the focus. There are various drills you can implement into your training program to increase your anaerobic conditioning. Some drills are straight sprints while others combine some change of direction.

My latest manual 'Training for the NFL' is a 4 phase complete training program ( has many anerobic conditioning drills with specific times breakdown for different positions.

Your training should be broken up into conditioning days and speed days. Make sure that the objective of each workout is clearly defined as you do not want to be training speed and anerobic conditioning in the same workouts.
