Las Vegas is hot. No doubt about it. I finished my workout today, on the track at a nearby high school, and I could not stop sweating. That heat was just right for this personal trainer though. I did a few backwards runs, and some 100 meter sprints, and you wouldn’t believe what you can accomplish on a fat burning level with sprints. When I want to lose fat, this is what I incorporate. I’m not going to say your situation allows you to go to the nearest high school track and do sprints. For all I know, you could live in Alaska, where it’s too cold, or you just don’t want to deal with the 100 degree heat here. maybe you don’t have access to a track because where you live, all high schools are behind security bars, I just don’t know. Anyway. You can still do these sprint intervals wherever it is you may be. If you have a bike, or a treadmill, or nothing at all, you can still do this kind of exercise. What this is, is basically an all out effort for a short period of time. Let’s say you have no exercise equipment at all. What you can do, is do as many jumping jacks as you can in 30 seconds. Now these, aren’t regular jumping jacks. These are quick, intense, pushing in, pulling out jumping jacks. you should average more than one per second. This could be your exercise for 15 minutes. Spend 30 seconds doing the j.j’s, then 1:30 resting. Do another 30, and continue the trend for all 15 minutes. Trust me, if you do this right, you’ll be tired. So, to finish this up, you can do interval sprints anywhere. But to make it effective, it’s the effort you put out on the sprints that are going to make all the difference.
