Sprinting is great for promoting fat loss, especially in stubborn areas of the body that most of us seem to consistently fight. And if you’ve ever seen the body of a professional or Olympic sprinter, you know there’s not an ounce of fat to pinch, squeeze, or jiggle. The workouts below need little explanation. All you need is a track or a treadmill, or even a field marked off with your distance. Simply, you just need space to run as fast as your legs will take you. Are you ready?
