Are you Sprint Adapted?
If you have embraced a Paleo/Primal lifestyle then you know what the term "Fat Adapted" is. But how many of you have become sprint adapted? It's initially challenging to move outside your comfort zone and start to incorporate sprints into your weekly fitness activities but like going through the process of becoming fat adapted the results will amaze you. It will take you about 2 to 3 weeks to adapt to sprinting but once you do you will look forward to the exhilaration of maximum effort. Take your time and build up to it, starting at 70% efforts and let your body adapt over time, there is no rush. There are many incredible biochemical and physiological changes that take place once you have become sprint adapted not the least of which is a tremendous boost in HGH. Sprinting re-ignites our ancestral genes in many unique and positive ways.
If you are looking to reduce body fat then consider high intensity interval training. Repeated high-intensity exercise sessions over 6 weeks (2 d·week) is a powerful method of increasing whole-body and skeletal muscle capacities to oxidize fat and carbohydrate in previously untrained individuals.
Sprinting is definitely the fountain of youth for seniors. Driving up Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone. After 3 or 4 weeks you will feel like you are in your 30s. Start easy and gradually build intensity until you can handle 8 to 10 100 yd sprints with a 1 minute walking/slow jogging rest in between reps. I usually jog a mile to the track as a warm up, do the first rep at about 70% and gradually increase until I'm going all out by rep #5. There is no rush to get up to 8 reps, take your time and build slowly!
