A few little things might help. I just step up and then step down the other side and turn around (instead of stepping backwards). It’s not a race so taking it slow might help. Also my box is only half knee height when I want Z1-2, then knee height when I’m doing Max str. Its adjustable and there’s a few on Amazon you can find. Hope this helps.
Unweighted box step-ups – fasted?
I do most my z1/z2 runs and uphill hikes fasted. Strength sessions I eat before.
For convenience during corona I’ve incorporated a session of box step-ups (without additional weight) because I’ve always thought of the box stepup as an “alternative” to uphill running… But now I’m not so sure 🙂 Never done this before and tried the first today. Standard size box, i.e. 3/4 knee height.
Just wondering if people do this fasted or not? I tried it fasted today and the box step up, to me, feels much more “muscular” than just running uphill (especially stepping down from the box), so I’m a bit unsure how to reason about this from from a fat adaption perspective.
