Tired-Legs Repeats

Benefits: By replacing traditional recovery with strength movements, these repeats teach your body how to run on “tired legs.”

If you are familiar and comfortable with performing squat cleans, coach Leo Jenkins recommends a weight range of one-third to half of your body weight. If you don’t typically do squat cleans, opt for air squats, broad jumps or burpees and double the strength repetitions.

• Do two squat cleans (or four squats)/run a 200m sprint

• 4 SC/200m S

• 6 SC/200m S

• 8 SC/200m S

• 10 SC/200m S

• 8 SC/200m S

• 6 SC/200m S

• 4 SC/200m S

• 2 SC/200m S

Total distance: a little more than a mile
