Hill sprints weren't always my thing. I used to love a good long (flat thanks) run on a Sunday morning. But since becoming a mum, the need for super quick fat burning workouts has risen exponentially. Who has time for long slow (and let's face it, boring if you're on a treadmill!) cardio these days?
Not only will hill sprints give you great legs, they are super effective at helping you develop a strong, flat and toned tummy! Boost your metabolism and say goodbye to the muffin top.
Top 3 reasons to add hill sprints into your training:
1- Gets your workout done quicker
Your time is valuable! You can get an awesome fat burning workout done in 10-15 minutes of sprint training, so why put up with long boring cardio slog sessions? You only need 60 seconds of intense exercise (i.e. sprint) to start burning fat!
2- It's fun (no, really!)
Do you remember the last time you ran as fast as you could? It's like being a kid again! Try adding some sprints the next time you're out for a walk - pick a spot up ahead and don't stop until you get there!
3- Improves your distance running
Do you have a running event coming up? Maybe a half marathon, marathon or even a 5km run? Start adding sprint training now! Sprinting naturally increases the body’s endurance strength, making longer cardio sessions easier. Through sprint workouts, you teach your body to increase its ability to store oxygen, which helps the muscles function in all forms of exercise, especially endurance events like running races.
