From Mark Sisson – 15 Reasons to Sprint

I am in agreement with Mark. Good thing about him is he always backs up his arguments with pretty good data. This is really a simple way to add a whole lot to your fitness and well being without lots of time commitment – it is the regularity that counts.

By the way, he doesn’t mention it but I will. If your body is properly aligned there is even more bang for the buck. Every step becomes part of your therapy when your joints are stacked properly. If for example, a knee or hip position is out, sprints may be objectively “good for you” but won’t feel that great, especially afterward. So with that caveat check out Marks post for more reasons why sprinting and interval training in general is a good practice. If you are wondering about your own alignment see my earlier post about how to evaluate your own alignment. Let me know what you find.

Here is a link to a recent post at Mark’s Daily Apple. It focuses on 10 different high intensity workouts that can be completed in 10 minutes. The caveat I would add to these is to pay attention to the posture part of the equation. If you have questions about this contact me or leave a comment. Everyone is going to present some alignment deviation that may pose problems with a high intensity endeavor. So I augment the approach he is advocating to include the posture component. So for example if one has rounded shoulders and forward head it is a good idea to do a short “corrective posture” preliminary to the routines he is talking about. Another example might be if your legs are not symmetrical in functioning there are some things that could be done prior to give more balance to the physical structure and hence gain more from the workouts and reinforce postural balance. That being said, I by and large like a lot of his ideas expressed in this post.
