The first step to implementing a solid, fat burning, cardio building, calorie burning bleacher workout is to find a set of bleachers to use. Bleachers will vary in size depending on the size of the town, how important football is to the town, the size of the school (whether it is a college or a high school). To aid in running bleachers use this helpful tool produced by the National Center for Education Statistics. This tool will aid you in finding a high school.
Unfortunately, not every high school has a set of bleachers that you can use to workout. However with a little searching you will be able to find a set of bleacher in your community that you can use. One thing to keep in mind is that football season is from August to November in most states and track season is from February to April. During these times the football fields will be in use. Don’t let this get in the way of running bleachers! Go ahead and get on the track and get your bleacher workout in. If you feel you must simply talk to the coach and tell them what days you will be there, for how long, and why you are there. I have had to do this on a number of occasions and have never had a problem. On a couple occasions I even worked out during Saturday morning games. There I was running bleachers while a game was going on.
Try a couple different stadiums out. Depending on the workout I am doing I may prefer a large set of bleachers (college) or a small set (middle school). Searching through our bleacher workout page will give you an idea of some of the workouts and what size of bleachers you may want for a given day. Getting to know your community will help with finding a great place to workout. Perhaps the best thing to keep in mind with Running Bleachers is that it is a FREE workout. No gym memberships, no gym time, no annoying gym rats etc. . . its just you and the bleachers! Will you conquer them tonight or not?
