So I would like to get into better shape. I need to run faster and have more endurance I don't need to lose any weight in fact I think I have to gain some lol. I have already been biking and running a bit but I was wondering if there was any special exercises or something that I could do to help me get fit faster. I can't really run very fast right now but I need to be able to for paintballing, before it wasn't a big deal but now I would like to be more aggressive and stay in games longer whilst not worrying about how much energy I have left in me. I have heard that jogging isn't good so I was going to steer away from that. Any tips?

:tup: exactly! sprint 40 yards, then take a rest for 20 seconds and repeat. or, if you have access to a legit track field i recommend running the starightaways and walking the curves. Do 4 laps of this and you should have a pretty good sweat going on.

How long should I do this pattern for? I don't have access to a field so I will do the 40 yard method.

As in pattern you mean how many reps should you complete?

Id keep the reps between 8 and 10. you should be very exhausted by the end of this. At the end of these i suggest doing a medium speed jog around the field as your cool down. I usually do 4 laps and it keeps the heart rate up for a bit.

What we did when I played football was start and run to the ten from back to the endzone. Run to the 20 run to the endzone. Run to the 30 then back to the endzone and repeat till you finish the field! I hated it at the time but it works!

Just one more question should I exercise in my environment. I play mostly woodsball, and I seem to run faster in the woods then if I was on straight pavement.

no, sprinting through the woods is a great way to sprain your ankle

yeah no, you prolly just think your running uber fast in the woods, but it is going to be the same on pavement.
