    You should focus more on sprints.

    You have to look at football in a different light than bodybuilding. I played for 7 years and I found the tredmill to be a great cardio workout for improving endurance. You should do both sprints and long distance running

    Stay away from the tredmill. Id say 2 times a week max for about 30 minutes max. YOu dont want to train you're slow twitch muscles

    i would say that with the given time for getting in shape it seems hard at this point. i dont know whether you are college or hs or another level but by the post its august 2nd so gettin in shape lets say before camps seems unreasonable. but with that i would say stay away from endurance training. football is a explosive and fast sport. a player needs to use their fast twitch fibers and by running endurance you will increase the fast twitch fibers. more fast twitch fibers are needed. plyos, sprints, and speed is needed
