Cardio Workout #1
This sprint routine is very simple, but highly-effective. I used this exact routine at least once a week during my college baseball career. It allowed me to maintain anaerobic conditioning, fight unwanted fat, and increase athleticism.
- Dynamic stretching: 10-15 minutes
- 60 yard sprints: x4 with 60 seconds of rest between each.
- 40 yard sprints: x4 with 45 seconds of rest between each.
- 20 yard sprints: x4 with 30 seconds of rest between each.
- Static stretching: 10-15 minutes
This routine consists of 12 sprints, and should take you no longer than 10-15 minutes to complete.
