This Sprinting Workout Digs Deep If you're looking for a cool way to change up a stale cardio day, a study published in the International Journal of Aquatic Research and Education suggests sprinting in shallow water. Tests performed on 20 recreationally active men showed greater levels of blood lactate and rates of perceived exertion running in shallow water compared to dry land, even though heart rate and range of motion remained about the same for both conditions.

True Strength Moment: Because of elevated metabolic demands, sprinting in shallow water might make an effective performance drill for team sports or track and field athletes. If you know a place where it can be performed safely, give this type of training a try for a couple weeks. Then head out to the track and post a faster time.
