Sprinting, rather than jogging, may help men lose more belly fat

Bloomberg News reports, “Sprinting, not jogging, helps men lose harmful belly fat faster,” according to a study published in the Journal of Obesity.

Investigators found that “eight-second bursts of sprinting repeated intermittently for 20 minutes helped overweight men lose two kilograms (four pounds) of body fat over 12 weeks.”

The researchers reported that “there was a 17 percent reduction in the amount of fat stored around their liver, kidneys and other internal organs that is associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease.”
