  • DeRozan Working On Conditioning His Legs And Cardio

    For years I basically lived down the street from there. I think I tried it once or maybe twice when I was younger.

    Early morning running the Santa Monica stairs... about 5 hours ago via

    Remember he tweeted that he was running this sucker and not walking it.

    Santa Monica Stairs - 4th Street Workout

    Almost any hour of the day, you will find LA's finest grinding out this popular and tough destination exercise in Santa Monica.

    There are actually two (2) sets of stairs, one concrete and one wooden. A workout can comprise of up and backs on one set or the other, as well as the popluar 'loop.' The concrete steps are directly at the end of 4th street, where 4th street meets Adelaide Drive in Santa Monica. The wooden steps are to the east several hundred feet. Both sets of stairs connect Adelaide Drive (above) to the ocean-level street below.

    * Wooden Stairs -- This set is wider, gives a little (wood), not as steep and is straight. As such, they are the preferred "down" set by many (safety being a prime reason, I presume). About 175-180 steps, I was told (I haven't counted myself).
    * Concrete Stairs -- This set is narrower, steeper, and has a couple turns. For people doing the loop this is often the "up" set.
    * Loop -- whether you go up the down set or down the up set... its about a ten minute loop and a bit more than 1/2 a mile I'm guessing (anyone with a pedometer out there?).

          Don't you think every player is doing some kind of workout? Why is it that DD has to tell everyone about it?

            because these days with twitter etc, i guess he wanted to share what he was doing with his time. I don't think all players are putting in the kind of work D.D is putting in this summer. Almost everything he has done this offseason has been about getting better and taking his game to another level. I for one am reasonably interested in what the future of the franchise is up to. lol

                  Haha...they wouldn't. He'd need an ice-pack at about the fourth step, by the 10th step he'd be on the 15-day DL.

                    Running stairs, hills- the memories.lol

                    DeMar's vertical this summer has been crazy improved- as if that was possible competition find 'em in the hospital, now I know why http://twitpic.com/2ds5k7 . Toe raises, hamstring curls and stair running (w/ weight jacket, ankle weights) is a sure fire way to get those hops increased.
