Today I’m sharing one of my favorite workouts that will help bring you closer to your fitness goals and improve your health overall. Some of you may know I ran track in high school; I was a sprinter. I ran the 55, 100, 200, 300 and the 4×1 meter dash. I enjoyed sprinting because I knew the workout or race was going to be over fast. No offense to the distance or marathon runners, but I despise running more than 3 miles because I think it’s pointless. I have things to do and I don’t have time to be running for hours when I can get an effective workout done in 30 minutes or less. If you have a busy schedule and you’re on a time restraint this will be the perfect workout for you.
Get your running shoes on and get ready to SPRINT your butt off. Those of you who hate sprinting, will soon appreciate it after you learn how it can transform your health and get you to your body goal faster. I’m not going to bore you with a long post about all the benefits because I want to get straight to the point on how to do the sprint workout, but here’s one of the resources that provide you with 10 amazing benefits here.
First thing’s first. Warming up is essential to get the blood flowing, which will help prevent you from pulling muscles or getting injured.
Stretching your whole body for 5 minutes
Jumping jacks combined with butt kicks followed by high knees for 5 minutes. If you don’t know what this is, look it up on YouTube to get an idea of what these warm-ups look like.
Take 2 minute to cool down
Spend the next 8 minutes SPRINTING, remember to run as fast as you can!
After you sprint your first-meter dash, take 90 seconds to rest in between each sprint. Repeat until the reps are completed.
If you don’t finish all your reps don’t be disappointed, just make an effort to do your best the next time until you are able to build your endurance to complete all the reps.
Only do this 3 times a week; if you exceed more than this it might be harmful to your body because the body needs to rest.
*For all of Bloomers that can’t do this outside, use your gym open space or basketball court to do these sprints.
