Do you spend hours in the gym doing a boring cardio routine because that’s what you’re told to do to lose those unwanted hips and belly?
Want a quicker, easier way to lose weight and keep trim?
How about a way that is guaranteed to work?
First question is this – who has lower body fat, a sprinter or a marathon runner?
Who has better muscle tone – a sprinter or marathon runner? Who looks healthier – a sprinter or a marathon runner?
Hopefully by now you’ll have got the idea – if you haven’t got it, the answer is the sprinter!
Sprinters typically have much more power, speed and muscle whether they are male of female – they also carry less body fat and have better muscle tone!
So let’s look at their training programmes.
Marathon runners typically do lots of running and the same could be said for most endurance sports – this is what their sport requires.
Sprinters however and sports people that need power, and do a multitude of different types of training for their sport!
- Strength training
- Speed training
- Power lifting
- Core stability training
- Agility work
Next question – are you training to run, or training to be fit and healthy?
Your training should match your goal – look at an athlete you admire and adopt their training profile!
Think about that the next time you’re at the gym. If you want to:
- Lose weight
- Get fitter
- Strengthen and tone up
- Look fitter
- Feel healthier
Cardio alone WILL NOT get you there!
