Sprint for maximum weight loss results

If you want to lose fat, Sprint.
That’s what a running mate told me many years ago.

And he was right. When you sprint, you burn fat.

Fast sprinting caused the body to release high levels of a specific group of hormones, called catecholamines, which drive the release of fat, especially abdominal and visceral fat, from fat stores so it can be burned by working muscles.

We don’t know why, but moving limbs very fast generates high levels of catecholamine.. in other words, interval training – but it’s a very specific recommendation, and worth trying if you want to lose a few pounds without drastically changing your daily routine.

Sprinting for eight seconds raised a person’s heart rate while keeping lactic acid release, which make muscles tire quicker, to a minimum. Try sprinting uphill on a trail – you can literally feel the blood pound in your ears from the exertion. Great way to get a burst of increase in heart rate and burn fat!
