After my initial enthusiasm with the stair climbs last week, I got a bit caught up with the running, and this fell behind. This morning I went to downtown to see where the stair climbing event would take place, and got a shock to see the building up close and personal! It's...high.....so I'd better get with the programme.
A little research took me to Virgil Aponte's website which has loads of goodies, such as video clips. After signing up for a free 15 page report on stair climbing, I received a pdf which gave lots of useful tips, and 5 free workouts.
The key workout I shall be using is his 'pressed for time' one:
- Walk up 20 flights of stairs (twice if you wish)
- Run up 10 flights at a medium pace
- Sprint up 10 flights at an all out pace.
- Take the lift down after each, to recover.
