New Ways To Use The Track

New Ways To Use The Track

The oval’s precisely marked sections increase focus, boost intensity, and provide the perfect setting for high-intensity intervals. Add bleachers and the outdoor space turns into a total-body gym. Here’s how to use it.

Fire up those muscles with short-burst cardio, then fatigue them by body-weight moves.

Decline Pushup – Place hands on the ground and prop feet on the bottom bleacher. Keep back flat and abs tight for a set of 10 reps.

Bleacher Jumps – Stand facing bottom bleacher and, using arms to propel you, jump up, hop back down. Go for 20 continuous reps.

Plank Offs – Go back to your decline pushup, and hold that top position as long as you can. Too easy? Put a hand behind your back; switch hands halfway through.
