Combining high-intensity cardiorespiratory exercise with speed, agility, and quickness (SAQ) drills is a phenomenal asset to any performance program. Combining metabolic hill training along with various plyometric exercises is a great way to accomplish this. After completing your foam rolling and general warm-up, jog for a few minutes and choose a steep hill to use for training.hoosing a steep hill. Select a hill that is approximately 50 yards long, if available. Sprint to the top of the hill using good technique. Once you have reached the apex, perform ten tuck jumps and then run back to the bottom of the hill. To perform tuck jumps, jump explosively off both feet and tuck the knees into the chest while in the air. Start out by performing the drill three to five times at 70-85% of your maximum heart rate. Hill training taxes the entire human movement system resulting in many benefits including power and cardiorespiratory conditioning. Performing this type of training two to three times per week will serve you well throughout your future fights.
