No matter how big and strong you are, if you’re winded and out of breath at the end of the game, you won’t win. On the court or playing field, conditioning often separates the great athletes from the good. So for this year’s Summer Training Guide, STACK spoke with six top trainers—coaches who’ve built professional sports stars and Olympic champions—to achieve one goal: helping you develop the motor you need to outpace and outlast your competition. The workout plans they gave us will get you in top-notch shape for your sport.
