Sprinting requires power from the lower body and abs. It also feels amazing to run with everything you have, to test your lungs, heart and explosive force.
Benefits of Sprinting
-Increases metabolism for a longer period after exercise than jogging.
-Improves heart and lung recovery time.
-Improves endurance for long distance running.
-Sprints intervals within jogging sessions, aid weight loss.
"hamstrings are the derivative muscle. if u have nice hammy's chances are high ur gonna have nice calves and ass and if u have a nice ass, you've gotta have a nice stomach. so basically....65 percent of ur body is essentially covered with nice hammys" – Michael Antosy HIGH FIVE
How Do I Sprint?
Sprinting is all about speed. The right way to sprint is with your body slightly leaning forward at about 4-6 degrees from the feet, not the hips. Arms should be relaxed, swinging from the shoulders and flexed at a 90 degree angle. Feet should be hitting the ground heel to toe. Don't run on your toes because it provides no stability and can cause injuries.
While sprinting, your stride should start under the centre of gravity. Basically, don't let your feet come too far in front of your body. This is called over striding. Similarly running in baby steps is called under striding. Both under and over striding will slow you down. Throughout the sprint always stay relaxed. Tensing you body not only slows you down but it will also tire you out more quickly.

Say hello to açaí (ah-sigh-ee), the fruit that’s making believers of world-class athletes and health-conscious people everywhere. Grown in the Amazon rainforest, açaí is truly a gift from Mother Nature. It has a rich, berry-cocoa flavor that makes it taste amazing, and its packed with more antioxidants than blueberries or pomegranates, plus loads of healthy Omega fats, protein and dietary fiber.
