Milo Apex Season 7: Week 5 at a Glance

Back at Quezon Memorial Circle for the 5th week training (Oct 7 and 9), I expected that our training will begin with more intense speed running drills, but in contrary, our exercises still focused on more recovery and conditioning. The conditioning exercises though still proved to be challenging to complete.

1st Day (Session #12):

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

Warmup: (12-15 counts each)
  1. Leg rotations
  2. Hip rotations

  7. Jump ropes
  8. Heel flicks
  9. Single leg hops
  10. Single leg balance (closed eye)
  11. Lateral hops (side-to-side, front-to-back)
Recovery and Conditioning Exercises: (1-minute each, 2-sets circuit)

The purpose of the following exercises, such as the foam rolls are for self-myofascial release or soft-tissue therapy to treat muscle immobility and pain. The foam rollers were also used to release the iliotibial band tightness (ITB unloading).
  1. Foam rolls (Hamstring for 1st set, ITB-side for 2nd set)
  2. Ali shuffles on tire
  3. Mountain climbers (elevated on tire)
  4. Planks with single leg raise
  5. Lying leg raises with theraband stretch
