How to Complete Gym Sprints? A fast way to fitness!
It can be argued that sprints are ideal for heart health and muscle growth. Because our heart rate jumps quickly we are forced to adjust and put ourselves within the "target" zone. As it declines it has an opportunity to jump again forcing increases and declines that are helpful to our cardiovascular system.
While improving your heart health is beneficial you may also find that your muscles will grow because you are engaging shorter fibers. Runners are often thin but sprinters are more likely to be muscled because their body is forced to accept quick spurts of extra effort to keep itself moving at breakneck speed.
As a general rule you will want to rest three seconds for every second you are sprinting. If you sprint 30 seconds you should rest for 90 seconds. If you sprint a minute you should rest for 3 minutes. This will allow your body to recover and go for another round.
There are multiple ways to sprint. You can sprint to a line and stop or sprint during a jog and slow down between sprints. The choice is yours. The key is to keep sprinting and relaxing throughout your workout and you will find that over time your body will become leaner and you will loose weight.
Good luck sprinting!
