Thursday Workout December 8, 2011

Tuesday and Thursday are my sprint/Plyometric/agility days where my concentrations are to improve my speed, agility, and power.  I am not too concern with covering distance on my Aerobic work. I try to use an Interval run to condition myself for sprinting and burn a lot of calories in the process.  I ran for 30 mins with a 1-to- 1 Interval. I ran this on a treadmill set to 3% elevation. For 1 minute I would sprint at 10 mph and stop and rest for a 1 minute walking at 3.5mph. I would continue this pattern until I reach my goal of 30 minutes or 15 sprints. It is a very simply exercise that will definitely help raise your endurance.
