In every work out regime there is an exercise that is dreaded but is needed. For me this is it – sprints.
There are very few people who enjoy this, however it is great for building up the CV system, which in turn will help build lung capacity for those hold downs and for cardio endurance on long paddle outs. So try this simple exercise based on H.I.I.T training (High Intensity Interval Training):
- 10 sets of 25m sprints with 15 second active rest
Active rest would be walking around between sets rather than sitting down, because you don’t want your muscles to relax, so just gently and slowly walk around until the next set. If you want to be a warrior then you can do these on a hill or sand dune.
