Spice Up Your Sprint Gainz!

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing 18 fun ways to spice up your HIIT cardio sprint workouts at the track.

Are you bored of your cardio?

Of course you are.

Fortunately, cardio does not need to be boring.

It’s time to have some fun with your HIIT cardio sprint workouts at the track.

One way to overcome the monotonous boredom of completing the same 100m track sprint, over and over again, is to change the starting position.

To do this, simply perform 1 of these 18 fun athletic exercises first, then immediately move into your 100m dash.

Note: before starting any HIIT cardio sprint workout, it’s important to warm up the body properly with a dynamic warm up.

HIIT Cardio Sprint Warm Up

Here’s an example of a dynamic warm up.

WU1. Walking Toy Soldier Kicks

The first dynamic warm up exercise are walking toy soldier kicks.

Reps: 30 seconds

Rest: 0 seconds

Sets: 1

Coaching cues:

  • With a hip width stance, extend one arm out in front of your body while simultaneously kicking the opposite leg up to touch your hand.
  • Reverse the movement by placing your foot back on the ground, then repeat with the other leg.
  • Repeat for reps.

WU2. Walking Single Leg Romanian Deadlift

The second dynamic warm up exercise is the walking single leg romanian deadlift.

Reps: 30 seconds

Rest: 0 seconds

Sets: 1

Coaching cues:

  • Stand on one foot, with the other foot raised behind you, and you arms hanging in front of you.
  • Maintaining a flat back, with a natural slight arch, push your hips back, keeping your back leg straight and hips square as you lower your upper body and arms towards the floor.
  • Once your upper body is parallel to the ground and you feel a good stretch in your hamstrings, press through your foot, squeeze your glutes, and return to the upright position.
  • Step forward with the opposite leg and repeat as you continue walking forward.

How Long Should You Rest Between Sprints?

A general rule for HIIT cardio rest intervals is once your heart rate lowers to a point where you can carry on a conversation, you’re ready to complete the next sprint.

  1. Love the channel(s) and the program. But have a conundrum. I run daily
    (either 3 miles on the road or interval sprints on the treadmill) + Tabata
    or HIIT. However, every single time I try to take my interval sprints
    outside I wind up straining the lower lateral portion of my Gastroc (1 or
    both legs)…..Any ideas as to what I could be doing wrong? Thank you in
    advance and for making this program, it truly makes a difference to many of
    us.

  2. Awesome vid guys. Gave me lots of ideas for when the snow melts. It’s
    getting closer. I love your fresh ideas. I am ordering some collapsible
    hurdles for a tough outdoor leg workout I’m putting together. Just got to
    get my plyo boxes made and the snow to go away. Can’t wait. Gonna be legs
    on Fire!!!!!! Thanks for the vid.

  3. I swear the definition of relationship goals yall are just perfect . couple
    that trains together stays together. 🙂 Awesome vids currently doing your
    sprint program love it!
