My name is Alex and my softball season has finally started last Saturday! I am really happy softball is back and everything but I found the first open gym very difficult and challenging.
We do these things called 18's. When we run back and forth across a gym 18 times and do various excersises like sprints, high knees, back peddles, etc.
By the time I was on the last 18 I could feel that my legs had nothing left and I felt like I was going to throw up.
It's really important to me that I stand out during these open gyms and to do that I need to be able to at least do these 18 without needing to collapse. I know that doing more intense running excersize will help me out but since it's getting darker early I can't find the time to run outside. So my question is what kind of workouts can I do inside that will help my preformance?
Thanks a lot!
