Vietnam Vertical Run
|For something different and a great view - I am giving this a go...October 30th|
Some points to note I have read on their blogs and forums.
- Considered one of the highest fat burning activities known. Aerobic + resistance = high callorie burning. "Among the most interesting data to emerge was that of calorie consumption; 80% per cent of energy consumed is directed towards transporting the mass upwards. In line with studies carried out with Geneva University in 1999 on uphill walking, stair climbing represents an ideal weight loss instrument for non runners. In fact, walking uphill, compared to the same exercise on level ground, consumes up to 10 times more calories*."
- Training - Train with a weighted back back on to increase resistance
- Aim to average about 9 seconds per floor (for a 50 story race)
