Benefits of stair climbing:
Studies have shown that hill repeats and stairs training can help improve VO2 max, increase strength and stamina, and other things that are all good for runners.
Stairs training can be a great supplement to both running and racing. It can also be a quick and effective alternative to hill repeats. We are surrounded by many tall buildings, many of which are accessible to the public, such as high-rise public residential blocks.
This session aims to condition the runner to (i) target the usage of gluts as the correct muscle group (ii) improve in endurance resistance due to vertical force which is against gravity and (iii) improve stride length.
Some of the benefits of stairs climbing include:
|Excellent exercise against gravity||Pushing down to lift you up the stairs takes more energy compared to moving on a flat ground. This drives up your heart rate faster. Regular stairs training builds your body strength, balance, agility and endurance.|
|Lower impact cardio exercise||It is a great cardio exercise without the excessive pressure to your joints as compared with skipping and running.|
|Equipment free and easy to start||You just need comfortable walking or running attire and shoes to start. No fancy equipment required.|
|Weather-proof||Rain or shine, you are well sheltered to do your stairs climbing in the building.|
On the listed Saturdays every reporting time slot will be gathered at the surrounding seats of the basketball. Each time slot will be allocated with a maximum of 10 participants.
The duration of each time slot will be allocated with a total training session of 60 mins. Safety protocol will be ensured at pre, during and post training. During the session, there will be approximately 30 minutes of stair climbing.
The stair climbing will be led by a lead with an aim of 2 segments of 10 minutes; inclusive of time taken to rest and taking the lift back to starting level.
All participants will be ushered back to meeting point for closure of training.
