  • Sprinting indoors



    It's getting awfully cold where I live and can't go for my usual lunch-break walks. I thought climbing steps in the building would be a good alternative. It's only 2 flights though. I tried sprinting the other day, but noticed I had to slow down when making the turn at each landing. What is the best way to sprint up the stairs? How many times would be ideal? The two flights probably have a total of 30 steps.

    It's below -30 degrees Celsius where you live already?

    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

        I think a quality rebounder / mini-trampoline is great for sprinting.

          I tried sprinting up the staircase at work y'day and I enjoyed it. Sadly, the Safety Manager happened to see me then and warned me not to do it again as it's a safety violation and that I must hold on to the rails when I'm climbing up. Try sprinting up while holding on to the rails!!! There goes my winter sprinting out the window

            safety manager yelled at you LOL --- I have this image in my head of a chubby kid wearing an orange vest and blowing a whistle


            I say get out and do it. But I like winter, can't wait to build the backyard ice rink. Anyway, how about jump rope. When my kids used to do it competitively, the speed events were quite amazing, they use a special thin wire rope and spin it like mad (on the order of 300/min)

            It's grandma, but you can call me sir.

                I've watched the competitions on ESPN and those athletes are nothing short of amazing to do what they do with those ropes.

                I grok, therefore I am.

                  Thanks for the links Sir, can't watch them now, will do at home tonight. I've never been able to jump rope, but I might give it another try. After turning primal, I'm able to do things I couldn't before (I did man-pushups this weekend; declined when a coworker offered me 85% chocolate today ) Who knows I might be able to jump rope too.
