Three Exercises For Race Course Endurance
You can have the sharpest edges and a perfect line, but if you don't have the endurance, you won't be able to optimize your performance. In this week's final episode, Sawyer Reed demonstrates exercises that are designed to help you build endurance so you can prepare for when the race gets tough.
Exercise #1: Trampoline Tuck Squats
For this exercise you will need a small trampoline.
Get onto the trampoline and into a tuck position. Set a timer for 30 seconds and push down into the trampoline while keeping your feet connected to its surface as it rebounds up. Continue to push up and down and hold that tuck position until the end of the set.
Exercise #2: Lateral Skater Jumps
For this exercise you will need an open area to jump.
Set a timer for 30 seconds and jump from side to side. Be sure to stick each landing before continuing to the next side.
Exercise #3: BOSU Ball Tuck Squats
For this exercise, grab a BOSU ball.
Stand on the BOSU ball in a tuck position and set a timer for 30 seconds. Instead of trying to max out reps, the objective here is to move at a slow, consistent pace.
Repeating all three of these exercises for 30 seconds each will help your race course endurance. However, if you really want to push yourself, work up to 45 or 60 seconds for each routine.
