Why Sprint Training Is the Best Abdominal Workout

There are so many great abdominal workouts out there and in the gym that are based around resistance training, but very few of these will give you the same overall results for tone, fitness, explosivity, speed, and the physique that sprinting does.

 

With the added benefit of building muscle along with speed, sprinting helps you build and define the glutes, hamstrings, and quads, while at the same time burning off the fat layers that hide the muscles underneath.

Sprinting does two great things for fat and abs. First, high-intensity sprint work increases metabolic rate and, second, it makes it last. In other words, calories continue burning long after a sprint session is completed. Fat is the extra layer we all hate most that hides muscle we would love to show off the most. Sprinting burns it off while simultaneously building up and toning the muscle underneath. It’s your perfect scenario.
