A New Slant on the 40 Yard Dash for Backyard Cardio
By: Andy Book, CSCS
Running sprints with limited rest periods between repetitions is unquestionably a great method of building strength endurance. On the other hand, running repeated sprints is frankly boring. It’s rare to see even dedicated self-trained athletes running sprints.
Typically, if you see somebody running sprints, there’s a coach directing this effort. If you don’t want to run sprints, but still want to build strength endurance the following circuit is a great alternative for boring sprint work. However, you’ll be doing 40 yard dashes. Boredom shouldn’t be an issue with this circuit. Fried lungs…well that’s another story.
