This morning was way too beautiful to stay inside. My runners and I took our fatigue strength workout outside!
I design Fatigue strength workouts to tire you out quickly. We did high reps of pushups, slams, and burpees.
Some hill bounds over hurdles….20 extra squats if you knocked one over.
Followed by a .3 mile sprint x 4.
After our bodies were properly fatigued we took it inside for the stability ball lunge circuit.
This circuit is great for three reasons.
1. Each lunge provides a different stretch to work on lower body flexibility.
2. When you sink into a deeper stretch you get more muscle activation as you stand up, increasing your muscular strength.
3. Balancing on the ball after a fatigue workout stimulates the core activation you need to maintain when your body becomes fatigued during the later miles of your races!
Train hard to race hard!
At least it’s black and white so you can’t really tell how big my behind has gotten on vacation 🙂
It was so nice to be outside, I barely noticed how I was ready to collapse!
