Sprints target your fast-twitch muscle fibers, build muscular strength and endurance, and improve athletic performance.

Outline

Sprints offer a wide variety of benefits, ranging from increases in strength and size, effective fat loss, and improved athletic performance. Sprinting increases the size and strength of your fast-twitch muscle fibers, which are vital for other powerful movements such as vertical leap and lateral movement. Sprinting also improves muscular endurance, work capacity, and overall conditioning.

Step 1

Stride out a comfortable pace.  Lean forward slightly as you accelerate to build momentum.

Step 2

Pump your arms to help your leg drive and keep your head facing forward as you run.
