Milo Apex Season 7: Week 3 at a Glance

Due to the heavy rains that poured out on this training week, our Monday rest & recovery session was cancelled. And because of this, our Wednesday training became a full wasakan mode, and had us introduced on medicine and russian ball workouts for the legs and core.

1st Day: No session due to Typhoon Odette.

2nd Day (Session #7):

Warmup Run:
2-km relax pace from apartment to Quezon Memorial Circle

Warmup Exercises Set 1:

The warm-up are functional exercises to mimic the leg turn-outs. Each is done for 10-counts slow execution (not forgetting the proper form for the arms and upper body), followed by another 10-counts of faster execution:
  1. Single leg knee-lifts
  2. Single leg knee-lifts to forward-step rotations
  3. Single leg knee-lifts to heel-cup rotations
  4. Single leg combo (knee-lifts to forward-step to heel-cup rotations)
Warm-up Exercises Set 2:

The second set of the warm-up exercises is to increase the heart-rate by doing fast intense-intervals in 10-repetitions of each exercise for a targeted completion of 4-minutes for 5-sets circuit:
  1. Shoulder jacks (forward-overhead arm swings)
  2. Regular burpees
  3. Ankle jumping jacks (squat to ankle-touches as you land from the jack)
Main Workout Set 1: Caterpillar workout (10-counts each, 1-set circuit)

Caterpillar workout is similar to the "follow-the-leader" games that we were playing back in our childhood days, except that this isn't a game but a workout. We were lined-up and allow the person in front of us to finish the first workout before proceeding on our turn, thus the caterpillar.

  • 10K introduction to Trail Running at Tanay Epic-Park
