since i am not competeing this year and gettin back into the swing of things for next indoor season i am training again… what would stadium steps/bleachers count for? this is what i am doing for the session..
BLEACHERS ARE ABOUT 20-25 METERS HIGH…
10X RUN UP TO THE TOP ON BLEACHERS (continuous –>walk down the stairs part)
(i have been working on driving my knees up, would there be more benefit if i just focus on going fast since there would be less ground contact time?)
after 10x i jog a lap… take 3-5 mins rest and start my next task…
5X ONE LEGGED HOPS EVERY OTHER STAIR
(EACH REP. I SWITCH LEGS) (my right leg which is my power leg and jumping leg i find it alot easier to do this)
so i do my straight run ups on the bleachers part, and do my 1 legged hops on the steps part….
this workout is tough… anything i can change add or do a bit different?
and id liek to know what is the specific qualities i will gain by doing this and what energy system is being used? The reason i am asking this is primarily to know if it is considered a high intensity day.
