Ultimate Conditioning workout

Ultimate is one of the hardest sports to condition for. During a tournament you run the length of a marathon but you do it in short sprints. The year Alabama won its conference championship, they used this workout.

Running for between 18-24 minutes every other day. Run 20 percent of full speed for 40 seconds then 80 percent of full speed for 20 seconds.

Second third of the season: Building sprinters endurance

Cycle once a week while practicing other days.

1st workout 15- 120 yard sprints.
