Sprints for a lean, muscular body

Sprints for a lean, muscular body

Today most men and women, athlete or non-athlete think that
to get into good shape they have to run long distance.

When did long distance running become the answer for a healthy,
lean, muscular body, most distance runners are thin and have no
muscle tone at all.

I know people that run miles and miles and are old looking and
are always complaining that their knees, back and ankles hurt.
Then I get the question ” What can I do so my knees, back and
ankles stop hurting” Stop running long distance!

If you compete in long distance races and you like it, keep doing
it, but for people that want to strip off body fat, become lean and
get into great shape, try short sprints, short sprints are intense
and will produce the results you want- FAST.

If you get a chance check out a track and field meet, look at the
sprinters, they are muscular, fast and explosive, than look at the
men or women that run 1600 meters or more they are always skinny
and sickly looking.

By doing short intense sprints you will cut your workout in half, you will
not be putting as much stress on your knees, back and ankles.

You will be increasing your metabolism at super fast rate and burn more
fat more often longer through the day.

Try to sprint for 10 to 15 seconds- walk 10 to 15 seconds- sprint again
try this for 10 to 15 minutes.

Another small effective workout, sprint 20 yards- skip 20 yards continue
for 10 to 15 minutes.
