Summer is officially here and if you’ve still got that unwanted spare tire hanging around your waistline, get your butt over to the nearest track a couple of times per week. Stop wasting your time with long, boring runs on the treadmill or elliptical and start doing some interval training or sprint work.
I feel that runs ,or what some of may call sprints, in the 200 meter to 400 meter range are the most effective track workouts for melting some fat away. A workout that I’ve been doing personally and also with a couple of clients is made up of 300 meter runs. A sample workout would look something like this:
- 10 minute Dynamic Warm Up (walking lunges, skips, bodyweight squats, reverse lunges, etc.)
- 4 50-75 meter build ups
- Run 300 meters, walk 100 meters. As you as you get to that starting line, take off again. Repeat 4-8 times.
