  • "Sprinting" In My New Apartment

    I'm moving, and my new place will be in the downtown area. So unfortunately I can't just sprint on the street.

    What are some good ideas to get my "sprint" on in my apartment?

    Stair sprints in the building stairwell, buy a kettlebell and do swings, burpees. Or you can find a quiet block or park and still sprint. I live in Manhattan and manage.

      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.

        Find a few square feet of space and have at it with a skipping rope, tabata-style. That'll get your heart-rate up.
        I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

          Push ups, burpees, squats, single leg split squats, jump rope, jumping jacks, planks...etc.

          No equipment or much space required.

                    Right on guys, thanks for the suggestions.

                    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.

                        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.
