Folks often say that humans aren’t really great sprinters. We can’t outrun most wild animals in a flat-out foot race. But it’s undeniable that sprinting is, pound for pound, the best use of your training time if brevity is the concern. The science confirms this. It boosts fat burning, increases both short-distance and long-distance cardiovascular fitness, builds strength in a fraction of the time it’d take to achieve it through other means.
