Those drills can easily be plugged into the micro-cycles for the O2 requirements also. The shorter and longer variety time frame of your drills hit all of the 3 major energy production systems and their sublevels of the body very well. A, AA, lactic and Alactic....

What kind of rest interval would you suggest for between sets/repetitions of those drills having them? Also, have you guys done any heart-rate monitoring for dryland/game demand comparisons? A few years back this was done for goalies training with Espoo hockey(finland) and Severla other teams in hte Swiss Elite Leagues.. Monitoring in game was used to compile the data which was then used to tailor the fine details and monitor the work levels of each individual. This also helped the participants KNOW that they are hitting performance levels needed to get the most benefit for their time.

One of the things i have noticed with the heart-rate monitoring for dry land work, the athletes mind can be occupied with tracking the rate during the work-out/drill. Being focused on reaching and maintaining tarfet rates seems to reduce the "self-motivation" needed for some who struggled in past lengthy drills.
