On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m showing you how to do sprint intervals without a track.
I guess you could call this street racing.
And no, I’m not channeling my inner Fast & The Furious aspirations.
I’m talking about using my own 2 wheels to get in a quick anaerobic workout that torches body fat and builds lean, athletic, and functional muscle.
That’s right, I’m hitting the streets of downtown San Diego to show you how to do sprint intervals while using the sidewalk on the street, stairs, or a hill.
Remember, there was a time when everyone needed this speed to sprint away from saber-tooth tigers.
That’s why our bodies are programmed to excel at brief, but intense, bursts of speed.
Unfortunately, a lot of people think they can’t sprint.
If this is you, ask yourself why do you think you can’t sprint?
Common reasons include:
Well, you don’t need a track.
All you need are your two feet.
You can also do sprints on:
Even if the sidewalk on the street is busy with a lot of people, simply take your 2, 3, or 4 point stance, and get it like Jessica and I did here.
It you want to make your sprint workout tougher, try incorporating hill sprints like those seen in this 15 minute hill sprints workout.
This will have you screaming, “damn that’s hard!”.
Or if you have access to an outdoor staircase, try this 20 minute HIIT stairs workout.
Trust me, if you find it hard to sprint up the stairs because you lack the foot coordination, don’t worry.
With a little practice, you’ll quickly begin to feel much more comfortable running up the stairs.
And if you don’t have access to an outdoor staircase, no worries.
Ok, depending on how out of shape you are, let’s build up to it.
Start by checking out this video post on how to start losing weight when you are obese.
I’ll show you how to progress to up to your first sprint workout in 8 weeks or less.
Even if you don’t have access to good sprinting weather, you can still do this sprint workout at the gym on a treadmill.
Do this sprint workout at home.
Or you could simply do running sprint strides on the spot for your sprint workout.
Any excuse you have, I’m pretty sure I can find a legitimate answer of how you can still use the powerful tool of sprinting, to Live Lean faster.
So get your sprints in.
Living Lean doesn’t have to be difficult.
Even if you live in a city like San Diego, you can still get your sprints in on the street.
Remember, excuses are poison.
In fact, thousands of people who are Living Lean are immune to poison.
So I want you to start being immune today by making the decision right now to be awesome.
Once you’ve completed your sprint workout, go home and fuel back up with some healthy post workout food.
Well, coming from the guy who is known for eating pizza, maybe a few slices is fine 😉.
