🏃🏼‍♂️ No time? 5 reps of this might be all you need . . .

Hey! – Rob here 👋🏼

 

Your Daily Health Fix today is about … 

Sprints (and explosive movements)

Remember this previous dose of Your Daily Health Fix where I suggested a workout to do when you’re short on time and equipment? Well here’s another quickie idea that will check your exercise box and bring with it a vast array of benefits.

 

 

Why you should sprint (even if you’re not into running) –

Aside from the fact that you can get a sprint workout in in next to no time, high intensity bursts should form part of a broader fitness program, including mobility trainingstrength work, and zone 2 cardio.

 

 

Did you know that . . .

 

  • In a similar way to weight training, explosive movements including sprinting engage fast twitch (type 2) muscle fibres, helping to develop improved strength, more stable landing mechanics, and over time reduced risk of injury.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Try this:

 

  • 🏃🏽‍♀️ Warm up well – either with some floor exercises or a gentle jog for 5 minutes.

 

  • 🚶🏻 Walk for 3 minutes.

 

  • 🏃🏽‍♀️ Then perform a 15 to 30 second all out sprint (max power). Keep walking gently for 2-3 minutes and then repeat.

 

  • 🔁 Do this for around 5 intervals. (If you’ve been giving it all, 5 should feel like enough).

 

 

Note – If you’re new to exercise, it’s best to build some basic strength and mobility before moving on to explosive movements. When you are ready to attempt sprinting, work at 85% acceleration and speed for a few sessions before attempting to go faster and more explosive.

. . . That’s it for this dose,

 

Until the next time – Stay Motivated!💪🏼
