A great benefit of sprinting is mitochondrial growth as that is a major benefit that used to be linked with long runs. However it was found that sprinting is just as efficient and you will find that even a sprint as short as four seconds is adequate for improved mitochondrial biogenesis.
No activity could be better when you look at fat torching than sprinting. A sprint can reduce body fat by 75% whereas long distance running reduce body mass and muscle mass which is the opposite with sprinting.
Overall body conditioning is a great benefit which is why even weight lifters and other athletes that are non-runners are often found on the track as it is part of their anabolic exercise routine which increase muscle mass while building strength too.
If you are an endurance runner or love long distances you will find that sprinting is an incredible way to improve your endurance as it increases efficiency tremendously.
To get started in sprinting you will do well when you train with a coach that offers the best workouts, technique and proper form to become a sprinter. Since you do not need equipment you still have to keep in mind that decent running shoes are vital as heavily cushioned shoes are not needed, but in this case you will wear minimalist shoes.
Training for sprinting also differs from that of distance runners as a sprinter needs time to recover whereas distance runners run seven days a week. You will find training adequate when attending tree to four times weekly while you build up strength gradually as intensity is high even though less mileage is done.
