- Fat loss
If you jog the same distance or duration over and over again, you will train your body only for the demands of that specific workout. Yes, you may burn fat and see other improvements, but if you compete in a sport other than running, they won't do you much good.
Athletes who compete in football, basketball, soccer or another team sport need to condition their bodies in ways that more closely resemble their moves on the field or court.
That's where the Sprint Workout comes in.
Alternating between 100-meter and 200-meter track sprints allows you to run near your max speed and simultaneously push your body close to its limits. This will improve your endurance, which will in turn increase your speed. It will also help you recover faster between plays, so you can maintain your peak performance. All in only 10 minutes.
Performing interval max-effort sprints burns more energy than jogging for the same amount of time. Better yet, your body continues to burn energy after you finish, as it recovers from the challenging workout.
