Sprint Trianing! Why do we do it?
As you know, I’ve been harping on sprint training a lot since the weather has gotten warmer. I found this article from the Poliquin Group, which I feel is amazing. Here are Eight Reasons Why Everyone Should Do Sprints.
We all know that sprint training can be mentally challenging, but the benefits it offers in a shorter time period than other exercises are substantial.
Better heart and lung health
Better cognition (Brain efficiency)
Improved metabolism (Burning Fat)
Optimal hormonal environment (More testosterone for boys and more growth hormone for girls and less cortisone for both)
Ideal body composition (Won’t look like a marathon runner, not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
