I totally need to incorporate this stuff into my workouts.
Conditioning is always last in the workout. Power/speed first, strength second, conditioning last. Typically the athletes I work with will focus on 1-2 things in a session but these guys are given a personalized program split into three phases over the off-season. Game conditioning is the focus for the final 4-6 weeks in the lead up to the start of a season.

Short answer is don't try and bite off too much in any one workout and split training demands over the week.

As an in-season conditioning workout, these mini MRT/interval ideas are excellent. Perform anywhere from 3-8 repeats. Reserve 8 for when you're preparing for the season and 3-5 as a normal scheme. Work them into a broader training regime. Listen to what your body is saying and don't exhaust yourself too much. It should be challenging and make you sweat, not collapse.
