with any form of conditioning:
It’s not always what you do but, more so how you do it…
application & prescription to “who” is of utmost important.
keep questioning and test 4 your self, the body will communicate, be willing to listen & proceed w/safety 3rd (JOKE!!) (haha)…
I know u get what i’m say’n…
I truly don’t know what SBT stands for.
However, whatever approach to training you use, you must ask yourself whether the approach your are using is effective to reach the goals of your client.
If SBT stands for short burst training and that is the clients goal and it achieves it’s purpose than it is effective. On the other hand if it doesn’t assist the client in reaching their fitness goals then it would not be effective.
Try to ask yourself, how does the the approach transfer into the everyday life of the client. For me, it would, I often have to race of the steps here in NYC to catch a train.
Hope this give you some direction.
Best to you!
Running stairs is one of the best types of training you can have. I incorporate stair training for both myself and my clients. It burns a great number of calories; it’s great for lower body muscular endurance and conditioning and keeps the HR in higher BPM than any other aerobic training out there. I combine stairs with an unlimited number of body weight exercises to get the most out of this workout. If time is an issue then running, climbing or combining stairs with other exercises (burpees, pushups, core exercises, etc.) it’s the most efficient way to reach some great results. I use a variety of routines, intensity and duration when I train my clients, depending on their goals, fitness level and training regimen. I have developed a program that combines stairs with swimming which I use for many of my tactical clients (law enforcement and military). For my more advanced clients, I also use some other equipment while they do stairs such as battling ropes, weighted plates, free weight, kettlebells and sandbags.
I hope this helps.
Could you please clarify what “SBT” stands for with regard to your question? Is is that you’re curious about using stairs for “short burst training” and/or interval training? I’d be happy to provide my thoughts once I’m clear on what you’re asking.
In the meantime, I’d recommend you check out an article here on IDEAFit to learn more about short burst training (if that’s what you’re interested in). The article can be found here: http://www.ideafit.com/fitness-library/short-burst-training
I hope I’m able to provide some additional help soon!
