Sprinters Vs Marathon Runners

OKAY FOLKS so here is a little bit of a question you can ask yourself before deciding on what type of training you would like to do. Who would you rather look like? A sprinter or a marathon runner?

You will notice the more lean and muscular body types that the sprinters have and the absolutely tiny frame that marathon runners support. Now they both run, so why do their body types look so different? The key is their training.

Marathon runners do excessive amounts of long endurance workouts where they burn up tons and tons of calories engaging their aerobic systems. Whereas Sprinters focus mainly on intervals which engage both the aerobic and anaerobic systems.
