DID YOU GO HARD today on your Cool Down? GO HARD OR GO HOME
What’s the point of high intensity (sprinting), really? It’s incredibly uncomfortable, it’s hard, it hurts, it taxes your entire neuromuscular system, and it has very little direct correlation to what you do in your “normal” life. Does this mean we shouldn’t do it? No way.
Here’s the thing. Intensity, moving as hard and as fast as safety and form allow, is something that we as human beings evolved to do. 10,000 years ago, it was sprinting – moving in for the kill. Today it might look like sprinting, but it also takes the form of any movement in which you push yourself to maximal effort. Just 10-15 minutes of high intensity intervals create an incredibly potent 1, 2, 3 punch on your body – nervous, musculo-skeletal, and respiratory systems – WHAM! And the ramifications are huge – forcing significant adaptation in all areas. Ask any runner that regularly does interval/sprint training at the track, and they’ll tell you that the most difficult and physically demanding workouts they do are their sprint track workouts. And I would say that these workouts have the greatest impact on their system.
