  • Sprint Workout Equivalent in a small apartment?

    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking for ideas for replicating a sprint workout without being outside, since it's pretty cold this time of year where I live. Any ideas?

    Diet: Currently experimenting with higher carb (Peat-esque) primal with emphasis on beef, dairy, seafood, sugar and a bit of starch on lifting days.

    Activities: Started Stronglifts 5x5 on 3/1/14. Adding sprints and hikes soon.

    I'd buy a small stationary bike that can handle the high level of exertion. Or a Versaclimber or Concept 2 Rower. But if all that's out of the question:

    Jump rope double unders
    Tuck Jumps
    Burpees

    Are a few options that come readily to mind

      I'd give burpees a try. If you're truly going all out you won't be doing them for long.

        sixpackshortcuts is pretty annoying, but m-100's are pretty effective. 10 burpees, 10 double squat-squat jumps, 10 mountain climbers X3 finished with 10 more burpees for a total of 100 total reps. Rest and repeat 2-4 times

          burpees, or even just squat thrusts (aka burpees with no jump). you'll be good to go.

            Thanks guys, I'll give burpees a shot! No room for a bike unfortunately

              All the above. And power jumps. Basically anything calisthenic can be treated as a sprint if you program it so. Some are largely pointless, like crunches. Program full body movements you can perform quickly and/or explosively and let the pain begin.
