Weekend Warriors

Continued from preceding page

or as complex as alternating
sports like skiing, skating
and pole vaulting. Alter-
nating workouts on a sta-
tionary bicycle, treadmill
and rowing machine, and-
throwing in a few weight
training sessions may offer
the best training regimen for
the person looking to simply
improve cardiovascular
fitness and maintain condi-
tioning.
Cross training outside the
gym may consist of tennis,
skiing (Nordic or Alpine),
skating (roller or ice),
swimming, running, bicycl-
ing, walking, basketball,
backpacking, rock climbing
or almost any other physical
activity which raises heart
rate and improves muscle
conditioning. These ac-
tivities may require more
costly equipment, profes-
sional training and spe-
cialized venues, but they
may also eliminate boredom,
add interesting physical and
mental challenges, and
make you forget you're
working out.
An athlete who plays
basketball, runs, and
bicycles for several weeks
may want to alternate
swimming, volleyball and
rowing for the next several
weeks. The more variety, the
better, as long as the in-
dividual's strength and car-
diovascular fitness goals are
being achieved.
It is important that anyone
interested in an exercise
regimen consult a physician
before starting, and the
fitness newcomer would also
be well advised to seek the
advice of a professional
trainer before beginning a
workout program.
Though popularized by
commercials featuring two-
sport star Bo Jackson, runn-
ing back for the NFL's Los
Angeles Raiders and out-
fielder for baseball's Kansas
City Royals, cross training is
most often associated with
the triathlete.
The ultimate triathlon,
Hawaii's Iron Man, requires
triathletes to swim two
miles, bicycle 150 miles, and
finish with a full 26-mile
marathon run. To compete,
the triathlete needs to be
better than average in all
three sports, and training
consists of equal amounts of
work in each. Conditioning
does carry over from one ac-
tivity to another, but sports-
specific training is crucial
for these athletes.
Perhaps an older form of
cross training is that used by
decathletes, like America's
Olympic gold medalist Bruce
Jenner. The 1 0-event
decathlon competition re-

quires athletes to handle
very diverse track and field
events, from sprints on the
track to hurling the javelin.
Here, strength training, as
well as cardiovascular
fitness, becomes important,
adding another dimension to
cross training.
The secret to cross train-
ing, it seems, is to define
athletic goals, then design
an interesting program
which will lead toward those
goals. The activities are not
so important as the quality
of the time spent in each ac-
tivity.
And while variety may be
a key factor in helping elite
athletes reach competitive
goals, it may also be the
weekend warrior's secret
weapon. It may help these
exercisers stick with their
program and, thus, improve
muscular conditioning,
physical endurance and car-
diovascular fitness.
Maybe Bo really does
know, after all. ❑

Walking For
Fitness

The fitness craze is sweep-
ing the country. No wonder,
with more than 80 percent of
all Americans saying they
regard "good health" as their
number one concern, accor-
ding to a Gallup poll.
They're taking to exercise
programs. And they are lear-
ning that by regular physical
activity, they can help their
bodies maintain, repair and
improve themselves. They are
also finding that a general ex-
ercise and fitness program is
enhancing their self-images
and their ability to handle
stress.
Fitness experts claim that
exercise, when combined with
good eating habits and stress
Control, can help you lose
weight by burning excess
calories and controlling your
appetite.
However, you must be
motivated. The President's
Council on Physical Fitness
and Sports cautions that
unless you are convinced of
the benefits of fitness, you
will not succeed.
Low-impact exercise, such
as walking, is growing in
popularity as a moderate ap-
proach to exercise. It is easy
and safe, and can bring you a
healthier, happier lifestyle at
no expense. It requires no
club membership or special
equipment.
Walking benefits almost
everybody, regardless of age.
More than 66 million men
and women are walking
regularly because it is a good
form of exercise.
