WHAT IS A FULL GASSER?

Full Gasser

You complete a full gasser by running the width of a football field four consecutive times. Start on one sideline and sprint to the opposite sideline, touch the sideline and immediately sprint back to the starting line. Touch the starting line and repeat by running down and back. The football field is 53 yards wide, so one full gasser covers 212 yards. The goal is to maintain a high speed for the entire drill.
