  • Sprinting!

    How many of you have truly incorporated sprinting into your Paleo fitness routines? If so how often, what distances etc. The attached article is great and relates to men and women, not just men as indicated in the title.

    You are all familiar with the term "fat adapted", I believe it is equally important to become "sprint adapted" to maximize your Paleo results.

    Forgot to mention, that I'm 60 and sprint twice a week - Sprint Day one - 1 mile warm up followed by 10 100 meter sprints and a 1 mile cool down. Sprint Day 2 - 1 mile warm up followed by 4 200 meter sprints and a 1 mile cool down.

        I can't yet. After a bad sprain, I'm just now at the point where I can walk 90 minutes and not have my ankle hurt. But I can't wait to start. Little old lady sprinting in the park - that will be me.

          I was for a while, until it got so damned hot outside that sprinting made me want to puke. Now it's cooling down and I'm looking forward to starting up again. You may have inspired me to get started!

            Sorry to hear about your sprain! When you are fully recovered and are able to start sprinting make sure to warm up with some light jogging and build up to maximum efforts over a couple of weeks. Your initial sprints should only be at about 70% of maximum efforts.

              Great! It made a big difference in my energy levels and body composition, hopefully you will get the same results.

                as long as i don't have an injury, sprinting has always been the surest aspect of my fitness regimen. i usually did one day of actual sprints per week, and sometimes a second metcon day. i haven't done a good sprint workout in about two months though, after i pulled a hamstring, then pulled it again a month later.
                i just moved, though, and there's a track about a mile from my place, so i'm thinking i might do some 400m intervals with some 100m controlled sprints (the hamstring pulls seem to be related to digging in too hard) and see how things go.

                  Sorry to hear about you hamstring injury. I'm sure you know this, but I build up to all out efforts, my first sprint of the day (after a 1 mile jog over to the track) is at about 70% and I build up to all out efforts only after gradually increasing intensity over 3 or 4 sprints.

                    I'm currently sidelined from sprinting due to a broken toe. Prior to last Sunday, I was sprinting or doing tabata with my kettlebell at least once per week.

                      Hope your toe heals quickly. I am mightily impressed that you were doing sprints at 266 lbs, get well soon and make sure you very gradually incorporate sprinting back into your routine!

                          I do more of a traditional 'Tabata' training: short sprints followed by short rest. If I am feeling ornery, I will jog in between the sprints. If I'm not, I'll completely stop for my rest.

                          It basically goes like this when I am on the treadmill: 1 minute sprint, 2 minute jog for 60 minutes. I can only do this twice/week since I have a chronic injury related to a broken femur neck 25 years ago.

                          I don't sprint outside as much as I'd like to do. The last time I did was on a fire access road in the middle of Oregon! It was beautiful.

                            I can relate to your fire access road experience. Some of the best times to sprint are when the spirit strikes and you just feel like sprinting for the sure joy of it.

                              I did sprinting for several months. I quit because it seemed to injure me more than anything and it didn't help me lose any weight. I'm trying slower exercise now to see if that will help me build my aerobic base up. It's pretty piss-poor right now.
