Would shuttle runs be a good replacement for sprinting? The gym I belong to doesn't have a very good running area (it's a beat up alley with pot holes and gravel). I could probably make do on some work outs where I could bring the rest of the equipment outside, but that's probably a PITA most of the time. Inside, I can do 25' shuttle runs, so a 40-yard sprint would be about 5 turns. I realize I won't be able to go full speed, but it would still bust up my lungs pretty good. I ask because I want to start the CFFB program. I'm growing dissatisfied with the regular CF programming and want to get stronger. The only problem I see with doing the CFFB programming is the sprinting...

Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend." - Bruce Lee [...]
