How To Do Hill Sprints – Run Faster & Burn Fat With Hill Sprints

Utilize hill sprints in your training to run faster, burn fat, and develop explosive power!

Sprint Training –

Whether you are looking to develop acceleration, burn fat, or work your cardio with high intensity interval training, hill sprints are a great way to accomplish a lot of work in a small amount of time.

For sprinters and other speed athletes, hill sprints are best used during the pre-season, where they act as a preparatory tool for the more intense sprint training sessions that come later in the year.

If programming your speed training or sprint training program, I would suggest you use hills during the first 12 weeks of training, for one of your sprint training days each week.

Start off with a nice, smooth grass hill, using training shoes/flats for footwear.

After you have done hill sprints for 9-12 weeks, you will be ready to do more intense acceleration work, block starts, and speed work on the track.

The hill sprints you do will develop specific strength in the positions and postures needed for effective acceleration, and by doing them early you will have a much better time staying healthy during your track season, football season, etc.
