Earlier this month, Melissa described the two principles you need to understand for conditioning workouts in ultimate Frisbee: movement and metabolic demands. One key point is that it’s critical to match the speed and intensity of your conditioning workouts to the speed and intensity of ultimate (i.e. long-distance running isn’t going to cut it!).
This week, Melissa has put together a sample workout that follows these principles and focuses on the demands of cutting. The workout rotates between skater hops, shuffles, and short shuttles, focusing on high-intensity intervals in order for you to work at full speed and maintain good form.
Check out the video below for the full workout!
