193m, which i think (without doing the math) would be a run from one goal line, to the other, and back.

I would probably split it up into 97m and then back.

You run the width of the field 3 times, down/back/down. That's how we did it in HS

What is a Gasser?

Starting on one sideline of a football field an athlete will sprint across the field to the opposite sideline, turn and sprint back to the sideline, plant and sprint to the sideline, plant and sprint back to the sideline. Sideline to sideline is 53 yards or 48 meters. 1 full gasser will constitute four trips sideline to sideline for a total of 212 yards or 193 meters.
The exercise and demo page isn't up yet, but there is an exercise FAQ (WFS):

Re: Anyone know what a "Full Gasser" is?

When we did them in HS, we started on a sideline, ran to the other sideline, back to the original, back to the other side, back to the original. Coaches would stand on each sideline, and if someone didn't touch the line, the whistle blew and we had to start over. Those people were beaten.

Different times for linemen and skill positions, and they went down every couple weeks. I believe at the end of the season they would be around 39" for linemen, and 34" or so for skill positions. We would do 3, with 1 minute rests. Pretty tough after a hard practice.

Re: Anyone know what a "Full Gasser" is?

Andrew is correct. Full Gasser and Gasser are one in the same. A half gasser is one trip across the field and back. The stopping and starting at each line really get to you. Also, the crest in the middle of the field can be a pain. A football field is 53 2/3 yards wide. Most I ever did; 20 half gassers with 30 seconds rest, had to make each one in 16 seconds. I tried to block that memory out of my mind.

Re: Anyone know what a "Full Gasser" is?

We did a lot of gassers my first year of college. I attended Montana Tech (before I transferred to Oregon State), and Coach Green was a big fan of gassers...remember, Butte is located at 5500' elevation....the gassers really worked.

Completely Brutal, no other way to describe it.

Re: Anyone know what a "Full Gasser" is?

I enjoying here football players reminisce about running Gassers. We had to run 16 1/2 Gassers for our conditioning test in Philadelphia. Had to make them sub 18 seconds...go the rest of the minute to recover. In college we ran 3 300 yard shuttles, in 50 yard increments. 5 mins rest in between shuttles. By brother's conditioning test was 8 full Gassers with 1 minute rest. Any way you slice it they are brutal.
