Workout Wednesday…All about the sprints :)

Happy Wednesday!!

Spring has finally sprung!  I’m so super excited to get out and enjoy the weather. 

One of the things I miss most in the winter is the ability to enjoy the outdoors and get in some cardio outside.  Although cardio is not my favorite thing to do, it does have its place (sometimes LOL).  However, doing it outside sometimes makes it more enjoyable for me.   One thing that I actually partially enjoy even though it’s brutal are sprints. 

I love sprints for several reasons.  For one, a sprint workout is really time effective.  You can complete an effective sprint workout in roughly 15-20 minutes.  Secondly, sprinting is arguably one the most effective cardio methods to burn the most amount of fat in the least amount of time.  Incorporating sprints twice a week is great for fat loss.

On Monday it was a beautiful sunny 75 degrees here so I headed over to my neighborhood park to do some sprints. 

First I warmed up of course with some high knees, butt kicks, lunges, and a light jog.  Now, it’s time to sprint!

Here’s the drill:

-Sprint as fast as you can for 200 meters (half of the track)

-Walk for 200 meters

Alternate between these two for 5 rounds.

If you’re cardio conditioning is really great, you can shoot for up to 10 rounds or you can do a light jog in place of the walk.

Conversely, if you are new to sprinting and working on building your conditioning and stamina, you can trade out the sprint for a jog.

It’s totally customizable.

Give it a try and let me know how it goes!
