Sprints better for Fat Loss

sprints-fat-lossResults from a study published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise suggest that repeated max-intensity sprints yield better fat loss results than longer duration, low-moderate intensity cardio.

There were 20 participants who were split into two groups.

Each group ran 3 times a week for 6 weeks.

Group 1 performed max intensity sprints. 30 seconds in duration, 6 sprints per session, 4 minute rest between sprints.

Group 2 ran for 30-60 minutes at 65% intensity.

At the end of the 6 week  study,the Sprinting group reduced fat mass by 12.4 %.  The low-moderate intensity group reduced fat mass by 5.8 %.
