Earlier today, I mustered enough courage to do something that is extremely brutal to do, sprints. Talk about one of the most exhausting things a human being can put themselves through. However, sprints offer tremendous health advantages to your cardio workouts. Did you know that by performing sprints, you can burn calories up to as long as 48 hours after doing them? This is what makes them incredible to do, because going on a simple jog will not yield these type of stats. Just make sure that you warm up and stretch properly before doing so in taking the right measures in not pulling a muscle.
