Effect of Sprinting on Metabolism



Does sprinting give you a faster metabolism? I am not sure, as I read in one of Berardi's articles that metabolism has more to do with what you eat than your aerobic level.

If you have a higher metabolism, does that mean you can theoretically eat more without gaining as much fat?



Well like HIIT etc sprint session will leave the metabolism Burning HIGH for hours after ward yes. It has the potential to build muscle so it could lead to a long term rise.

sounds like you are looking for a way to eat more food. LOL any activity more than you are doing now will allow that and yes sprinting is a great choice as is HIIT etc.
