Paintball work outs

Yo guys what's up!

Much like most of America I'm starting to get back In shape for paintball season! I could tell a big thing from last season was that my legs were going dead on me about 3 minutes into a good rec ball games.

If you guys has any tips or idea what I can do to help prevent that or work outs you guys like for paintball that would be great!

Thanks guys
-Sunday

I do a lot of running. Should I do more distance or sprints?

What kind of play do you do? How far do you run when you run?

A lot of rec ball. Starting to play more airball. Usually run 1 mile before I lift, another mile or 2 after the lift. Also usually bike 5 miles or more

Sprints

No matter what position you play you have to be quick. Obviously front guys need to be quicker but even as a back man, when its time to move you better move quickly.

distance running will help you keep in condition during longer matches but speedball matches are typically over pretty quickly

Start by defining your goals and the environment you play in- do you want to be the only one with gas in the tank at the end of an 8hr scenario or do you want to be the fastest one off the break for speedball?

That will inform your workout priorities - speed v endurance v strength
For most paintballers, leg strength (i.e- big numbers on 1 rep max for squats and deadlifts) will not be as important as footwork and endurance. If your play style has you running sprints farther than 15 yards, you may need to shift those priorities towards a more speed/power related goal.

So, assuming you're going for more endurance and looking to improve your footwork and agility. You obviously don't need to start a marathon training program- that's probably overkill for your endurance needs. I'd suggest looking at a 5k training plan. There are plenty of them out there from reputable sources if you don't have the knowledge to build your own program. You can work on agility drills with a few cones and some flat space. Again, there are plenty of drills out there on the internet.

If your goals are different, shift the balance of your workout schedule to reflect that.

Squats, flexibility, run sets

For rugby, we've been running up and back 40 meter sets, first 10, then 8, then 6, then 4, then 2. The rest between is the amount of time it took you to finish the last set.

Definitely feel a difference after just two weeks.

My fitness goal is to have the physique of a rugby player (mostly there). When I got back into paintball, I felt that a rugby-oriented workout would be ideally suited to boosting on-field physical performance. I play front most of the time and that goal has already payed off.

Rugby players all have massive legs. Front squats help a lot and prowler pushes for HIIT cardio/leg drive if you have access to a prowler setup.
