Benefits of Sprinting on Building Muscle:
Why professional sprinters are built, and how you can do the same
By Victor Moreno Morillo
Sprinting is a fast and explosive exercise that can not only build strength, but also your perfect body.
While sprinting, your body uses what’s known as fast-twitch muscle fibers, which are responsible for quick and intense bursts of energy. These fibers are bigger and longer than slow-twitch ones (the ones you train during long distance running), making your muscles appear bigger when trained.
Sprinting also has a positive impact on the brain, increasing the production of Growth Hormone up to 2000%. This promotes longevity, injury healing, and fat loss along with muscle growth. Moreover, sprinting also increases the production of Testosterone, considered the major promoter of muscle growth.
Finally, sprinting workouts, due to their nature, usually take not nearly as long as other types of workouts while still providing the desired benefits.
