Default what should i do here.

ok, ive only got 35 pounds on bench to go untill i start my first cutting cycle. the problem is HIIT training doesn't seem like it will increase my cardiovascular abilities for football practice (not needed for actually playing line). should i just do longer slow jogging or both or what? id like to be able to do a 8 minute mile (currently about a 10.5) and loose a little weight so i dont have to buy bigger around pants.

Long slow jogging is fine for fat burining but it's not what you want for football. Unless you like to take a long slow jog on the field during the game. You want relatively high intensities for you "cardio" training. Something like 80% for continuous type stuff. And yes HIIT fits into that as well. It can and will increase VO2 max more quickly and improve cardio fitness a great deal. I'd say use a mixture of whatever you like but don't bother with the jogging.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

why are you cutting if your goal is to get stronger to be a better lineman?

beleive it or not, being an offensive lineman doesn't get the chicks, something about having a gut and no muscular definition they dont like. also, i know im not gunna play college ball because im to short so id like to loose the gut and get a chin again. thats pretty much it, that and id be the strongest skill player on the team if i loose enough to play fullback or tightend. which would be cool.

i graduated 2 years ago and i was a power tackle/fullback, dude, i got plenty of ladies, just because your a lineman doesnt mean anything. the ladies love BIG guys regardless. haha... some ladies dont even like 6 packs. my gf for example likes a little extra haha. but im trying to loose a little weight too.

to be a better football player, id hit the squats and power cleans, work those legs bro. footwork agility and a lot of hand eye corrdination dirlls. a football player isnt made in the weight room, go out and run, and do drills. if you need some drill ideas let me know. i play football in college
