The Most Innovative And Dangerous Bodybuilding Exercise… Ever

When I wrote ‘this post‘, I stated that running up hills is one of the best high intensity training techniques that you can do for your cardio workouts, which is true. But I’ve found something better. This technique really will separate the men from the boys in more ways than one. It is something that I used to do back my college days, and I can vouch for it’s effectiveness. I call it…

RUNNING UP ‘DOWN’ ESCALATORS!

Now, I know you have all used an escalator before, and I know you have all tried to run up the ‘down’ escalator at least once in your life, so you know how much of a challenge that can be. But this is a whole different ball game. You will use these escalators to perform high intensity training at least once a week.

Now let me be your introductory guide for this unique exercise

#1 Finding An Escalator

The first thing you will need to do is find an escalator in an isolated location. You will want to avoid injuring members of the public. That could lead to all kinds of complications. The best place that I know of is underground railway stations. They always open very early and close very late, so there will be plenty of time to choose your run time. Another idea would be to choose the station at the end of the line. Those will always be empty.

#2 Reps And Sets

Before you begin to understand how many reps and sets you will do, you will first have to nail the process for progression.

– Start small by running down the escalator by 5-6 steps
– Turn around and run back to the top

Then all you do is increase the number of steps you run down as you begin to progress. After that it’s entirely up to you how you wish to break up your sets.

#3 You Could Get Into Trouble

This will happen, more likely then not. That’s where we will find out if you are a man, or just a boy. Will you take that risk? Will you reap the rewards of this exercise? That’s down to you. But if you really are a man, then no one will get in your way. Developing and using some charm, charisma and schickt will get you a long way.

#4 It Will Be Fun And Liberating

If your workouts (or life in general) are lacking some excitement in them, then you can guarantee that this will put the fun back into it. Performing this exercise in these locations will make you feel like a big bad kid again and liberated is how you will feel. If you are lucky you may even find yourself on youtube.com. However, if you become an internet superstar from the whole escalator ordeal, just make sure you link back to stayfitbug.com and give me credit for it. 😉

Nevertheless, if you do grow some balls and attempt this exercise, you can be sure that it will test you to the max. And again, in more ways then one.
