comment Useful exercises to increase agility/responsiveness for team sports
If you are anticipating well, work on your intensity. Learn to trigger action off of your anticipations. One of the goals of plyometrics is to train the nervous system to react faster (and learn to use elasticity of muscles for more power).

comment Increase Anaerobic Energy Levels
Ran the program again today with much better success. Armed with a better understanding of how anaerobic and aerobic energy works, I realized that I just needed to plan more time to rest in between reps AND sets. After each rep, I simply waited until I felt like I could perform the next rep without compromising my form/performance. It went much, much better.

Here's a key article on conditioning for Ultimate. When I first read it my perspective on "how" I should train changed, but I'm still figuring this all out. skydmagazine.com/2011/01/…

comment Increase Anaerobic Energy Levels
Interesting... Maybe this is a better way to put it. I know how to pace my self as a distance runner, so I know what my aerobic energy levels can sustain. All of the exercises in this program surpass the levels that I can sustain continuously. How can I teach my body to recover quickly so I can surpass my aerobic levels repeatedly and then recover very quickly?

After starting to read that wiki article on energy systems, I'm wondering if maybe my ATP-PC system is dominating over my Anaerobic Lactic system. I need to train/improve my Anaerobic Lactic system.

I appreciate your help. I don't think aerobic training is the answer. I've been running short distances for a while now, and my times are decent given that I don't have the build of a distance runner. I can do: 6:00 x 1mi, 6:30 x 2mi, 7:00 x 5K, 7:30 x 5mi. All of the exercises in this program are anaerobic except the warm up and cool down.

Yes, it is called Snertz: uascentral.uas.alaska.edu/onlinelib/_portfolios/ULTIMATE/…. The competitive season starts now through when I stop playing. I'm not really on a "team," so it's tournaments in the spring and then leagues in the summer and pickup all through.

Can you provide more detail about this "Glycolytic Pathway"? Is creatine found in any foods, or does it have to be taken as a supplement?
