    "Sprinting" In My New Apartment

    Shop Now
    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.

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

    No equipment or much space required.

    Moderate weight thrusters are metabolically taxing in the nicest possible way

    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!
