I have been running for both endurance and doing sprints over the past month to try and improve my take off speed and longevity while playing football. As I was playing today it seems like I have not progressed in the least. I know its only a month, but do you recommned when you are trying to gain some endurance, also what about take off speed?
For the training I have been running laps mixed with elliptical training for 30 mins twice a week after I train. Then once a week after I train I run 20 yard shuttle sprints until I literally can’t do another one. On saturday do agility training, ball handling excercises, and two 300 yard shuttles to end practice. Then on Sunday I play football for 2 hours.
Any help or advice is appreciated, especially on the initial burst of speed.
