Is there a difference if you run lets say 3 miles at a almost full speed and running 3 miles at a medium pace???? Does either increase cardio more or makes you lose weight faster? or is the distance all that matters??

if you can sprint 3 miles you got some hell of conditioning going on..i would imagine running a longer amount of distance at a medium pace would burn more fat..imr eally not sure tho..i jog most of the run and sprint every once in a while

Sprinting is a lot better than joggin and makes u lose weight better, dont neglect joggin though, try sprinting 1 mile if u can do that then go to 2 miles...

Also run 3 miles and finish off with some sprints etc

mix it up and have some fun

Sprinting even one mile is very very impressive.

No body can sprint for a full mile. Full mile runs are endurance runs. I don't think it's possible to sprint that long of a distance. Sprinting 800 yards is damn impressive. Doing over twice that amount is near impossible.

Yeah, nobody can sprint a mile if you can sprint a mile then you aren't sprinting at all. Sprint is running as fast and as hard as you possibly can.

Interval sprinting is excellent for conditioning yourself for fighting.

For example run 100m, then slowly walk the next 100m. Repeats times 10.

But doing long runs is also important.

wtf? 'if u can sprint one mile try sprinting for 2.' Thats ridiculous, if you can sprint for one mile then ur either a machine, or u dont know the definition of the word sprint. A sprint by definition is a pace that you can only keep up for a minute maximum, because you use anaerobic respiration, thereby producing lactic acid and tiring the muscles extremly quickly.
If you aim is to lose weight, you should be mixing it up between jogging over long distances and HIIT (high intensity interval training, basically where u work at full intensity for a length of time, then rest, then work again).

just sprint for 600meters or as fast as u can for that distance. Then take a minute rest, and do another 600 meters take a minute rest ,...rinse and repeat

i read this first at bodybuilding.com with regards to boxing and how this simulates a boxing round. Screw jogging,...do the sprinting thats where your speed and endurance will be developed from. Jogging is "old school training",...leave it in the past.

Jogging still has it's place. You should do both. Say what you want about the old timers but they had incredible cardiovascular systems as well as muscular endurance.

In fact, I think something that is overlooked is distance walking. Foreman once said that there is nothing better for your balance than walking. The guy would walked everywhere he went. The same was true with Marciano. Fitzsimmons was also known for taking several hour walks in the evening.

Basically if you are a fighter you have no excuse to be sitting around watching TV in the evening when you could be out walking. Just because the hard training is over does not mean it is time to lay down and relax. That's what the 9-10 hours of sleep is for.

Yeah, man, I was really doubting whether that was possible or not. I was just tryin to see someone sprinting 3 miles in my head, and I was like "nah, it's not happening..."

Technically sprinting at full speed is not possible past about 40 yards i think. You are losing acceleration slowly after that. Hence the 40 yard dash times people measure speed by.

You can run as hard as you can until you pass out unconcious but you arent really " sprinting".

When running track in high school I ran the 100 200 and 400. The 400 is the hardes race in the world i think. You " try " to sprint the entire lap. After this I felt like i was going to collapse every time just about.

50-52 sec. in singles competition there would always be someone that ran high 40's that would win. but our 4x400 team would always place in regionals and we would go the state championship races. then there would always be a team where each guy was running in the high 40's. it was just sick.

Thanks, dude. I'll keep that in mind. :boxing: :D
