If there's a school nearby a soccer field or running track is a great place for sprints. Many schools will make a soccer field inside of a running track, so if you do the perimeter of the field it is ~350m.
Tuck jumps do sound nasty! Maybe I can use all of those suggestions to keep things interesting. Going outside will be a chore in the upcoming months, because it's going to be cold in Colorado.
I'll get some sun though, promise!
Tuck jumps are brutal. I do them when I haven't been able to sprint (or haven't felt like it) because it's a much faster workout, but very taxing as well. I also do it as a quickie before showering sometimes. You'll feel your quads much more than when you're sprinting, but in no way am I saying it's better than sprinting, just different. I still think hill sprints are king and should be done more often than not.
I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.
ninja jump, tuck jump, squat, jump feet out like in a burpee, draw knees underneath you, start over. a ninja jump tuck to me is more explosive than a burpee and a couple of those really make me feel beat up in a great way.
