What is your build like? [/quote]
6’2", 260lbs. 20 - 25% body fat. Progress here is going well.[/quote]
Obviously you are on the way down weight wise, but i think this is going to be the best way to get faster. Running in the cup wouldn’t hurt to get your cardio up. And if you run a zone you can always play short deep or wing to catch your breath.
And as you mentioned, the right cuts can make all the difference, especially if you stack it up on O. Big guys actually have a bit of an advantage in this position because you can muscle other people.
But as for training, I would just recommend getting together with some friends and running huck drills. So basically just start out in a stack and just keep making deep cuts, your lungs will thank you during games.
Another thing you can do is just try to burn yourself out in scrimmages/real games. Run as hard as you can for 1-2 points, eventually you’ll get to the point where you do this for multiple points.
Also I would recommend getting into the habit of running a couple miles a week, I never did this and is probably why I am slow and out of shape (that plus a knee injury).
Any other questions?
