Weekly Conditioning •

The weekly conditioning workouts are below your weekly lift sheets. There is a different workout for each day.

The conditioning workouts for Monday, Wednesday and Friday are explained briefly on the weekly conditioning sheets and explained in detail in the following pages.

Measuring yards is easy. All you have to do is take a large stride and that will be about the length of one yard. For example, 5 strides equal 5 yds etc.

If you do not have cones you can use shoes, shirts, etc., anything you can put on the ground.

When running shuttles follow the directions for that week. For example when the instructions say to set up the cones 25yds apart to run 100yds you will have to make 4 trips (down and back, down and back) to equal 100yds.

The work time means the amount of time you have to finish a specific sprint/shuttle/etc.

The rest time is the amount of time you must take in between. NO MORE NO LESS! I will expect you to be able to work in these times when you return.
