40 yards is the width of the attack zone. This longer sprint will build conditioning and strength in your players.
Description of Drill-Execution
Start all players on the line, at one side of an attack zone.
On the whistle they will run a 40 yard dash as fast as they can.
Give the players 10-15 seconds in between sprints as they do this 10 times.
At ten, have your players get water, and recover for 2 minutes (like a time out). Repeat this until you get through 4 sets of 10 sprints.
Variations/Progression/Increased difficulty (As your players improve their skills incorporate the following…)
Add a ground ball to the start of each sprint or a special move to be completed at the end of each sprint (roll dodge, etc.).
