WORKOUT OF THE WEEK

YOUR WEEKLY SOURCE FOR VERSACLIMBER TRAINING

1,000 foot challenge – climb as fast as you can until you reach 1,000 feet. Moderately aggressive RPE 7-8

As you continue to train the various energy systems, your VO2 max will improve allowing you to cover more vertical feet in less time. This 1000 foot challenge is great to periodically add into your routine not only to challenge yourself with a difficult workout, but also evaluate your training progress. Depending on your fitness level, this challenge will take between 5 – 8 minutes.

Goal: 1,000 feet for time

  • 5 min easy warm up @ RPE 2
  • 5-9 min moderate-high @ RPE 7-8

    Last week I did 1000 feet in 4:54.

    Felt like I was about to die immediately after getting off the machine.

    I’m trying to get 1,000 in 5mins or less. So far, I can get 931 feet in 5mins. Still working on it. “I think I can, I think I can…”
