Men’s Health Urbanathlon 2012 Workouts


The annual ultimate fitness challenge presented by Men’s Health entitled Men’s Health Urbanathlon 2012 is fast approaching happening this coming October 14, 2012 at SM Mall of Asia. Are you one of the participants who register and take this challenge?

Hurdling obstacle courses is not just an easy challenge that everyone can face and grab this opportunity.  For preparation you need to check some workouts so you do not be surprised for the trials waiting in the course.

And be sure that you don’t miss this workout that I found in Men’s Health website:

THE URBANATHLETE WORKOUT

We asked sports-performance coach Alwyn Cosgrove, C.S.C.S., co-owner of Results Fitness in Santa Clarita, California, to design three mini-workouts, each one inspired by our most recent Urbanathlon, which featured long runs interspersed with muscle challenges. Workout 1 will train you for sustained effort, while the other two will build aerobic capacity and stimulate fat loss. Complete each routine once a week. Also, add one challenge—described on the next page—to workouts 2 and 3. You’ll inject variety into your training time as you have more fun and achieve better results. 

Workout 1 

Step 1: Run 2 miles.
Step 2: Find a hill and run up 50 yards at about 80 percent of your sprinting pace. Walk back to the starting point. Do this a total of 10 times.
Step 3: Run 2 more miles.

Each week, add a quarter mile to Step 1 and to Step 3 until you build up to 6 miles total. 

Workout 2 

Step 1: Do a 400-yard sprint, timing yourself with a stopwatch. Try to run at the fastest pace you can maintain from start to finish.
Step 2: Rest for the same amount of time it took you to do the sprint.
Step 3: Add in Challenge 1, 2, or 3 (on the next page).
Step 4: Rest for the same amount of time you rested in Step 2.
Step 5: Repeat three times, for a total of four rounds.

Each week, add one round (including challenge) until you build up to eight rounds. 

Workout 3 

Step 1: Do an 800-yard sprint, timing yourself with a stopwatch. Try to run at the fastest pace you can maintain from start to finish.
Step 2: Rest for twice the amount of time it took you to do the sprint.
Step 3: Add in Challenge 1, 2, or 3 (on the next page).
Step 4: Rest for 60 seconds.
Step 5: Repeat three times, for a total of four rounds.

Each week, add one round until you build up to eight rounds.
