If you want to lose that belly fat fast, try sprinting. Sprinting is running as fast as you can over a short period of time or distance. Just 20 minutes of sprints for three times a week will give you that toned ab. With sprinting, you can also lose fat from other parts of the body like thighs, hips and buttocks. Being high intensity in nature, it helps you lose more weight than with low-intensity exercises alone. Short bursts of sprinting can actually burn 200 calories, which is much more than jogging or walking for long periods. Here is how you can lose weight in 15 days.

Sprinting bolsters your metabolic rate so much that you continue to burn calories even after the workout. As the activity makes you breathe harder, it increases the amount of oxygen in your blood which improves your metabolism and also helps you detoxify. It also helps you build strong muscles and enhance your cardiovascular endurance. Here are 9 ways running can keep you fit and healthy.

Make sure that you don t sprint more than three to four times a week to allow recovery of the muscles. You can do low or moderate intensity workout on days you are not sprinting. Also, make sure you warm up before you begin an interval session of sprints. It prepares the body physiologically and psychologically for exercise, increases circulation of blood to the various muscles that you re going to work out and also improves flexibility which decreases the chance of being injured.
