I have really be reading a great deal about sprinting and how it is good for building muscle and shedding body fat.  I think what makes it so good is that you are not doing it for very long, yet you burn more calories in that short time than if you would have been running for a long distance.  I have an ectomorph body type, so after I do build up enough muscle and it is time to shed the fat, I try and keep as much of the muscle as I can.  Doing steady state cardio has a tendency to cause more muscle loss than something like sprint training does, and actually you can end up building muscle by sprinting. 

Good post enjoyed reading it :)
