    Hi all-

    Longtime fan of TFNA and Uphill Athlete. Many thanks to Scott and Steve and Team!

    I am getting ready to start my ME phase and we have a Jacob’s Ladder machine at our gym (https://jacobsladderexercise.com/product/jacobs-ladder-gym-equipment/) I had never seen one of these before and was a bit afraid of it, but it seems to be a lot like 3rd class climbing and have been playing with it. Does anyone have any experience or advice on using this for an ME weighted hill workout? I think I can regulate the speed enough not to max out too much, and although I have access to good hills around Boise Idaho seems like a good efficient morning possibility. Thanks as always! Jack

    Interesting… What’s the range of inclines that it allows for?

    Hi Scott. It is fixed at around 40 degrees so is pretty intense on the cardio aspect, but I think you can carefully keep it at a slower speed to avoid redlining. I am still playing around with it!

    Sorry for the delay.

    For ME 40% will be pretty ideal, but I wouldn’t use it for general aerobic work. It’s too steep for that I think.
