Alternative names I considered for this workout . . . “90 Aisles of Pain” and “Death by Intervals.”
This workout is consistently difficult. It never gets easier. You just learn what your pain threshold is before your legs completely give up and you’re gasping for air.
But just like anything else, the more you run stadiums, the better you become at it. Then it’s time to raise the stakes. In Florida, add in 93-degree weather plus 90 percent humidity, and you’re in for complete exhaustion because when you gasp for air, it’s hot, thick and humid.
So have I convinced you to try my Stadium HIIT Workout below yet? If it’s good enough for Tim Tebow, it’s good enough for me. 🙂
Note: I usually warm up for this particular workout by running one lap around the stadium or completing this Stadium Workout Warm-up. Don’t forget to stretch afterward too.
Fun facts: I ran up/down every step in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium (a.k.a. The Swamp) in 2013 as a senior in college, and my calves felt like they were on fire for three days afterward. But despite the torture, the Swamp is my favorite place to workout, and running stadiums is my favorite workout of all time.
