Sprinting alone? Definitely not. You'll burn fat with a good diet and cardio, but you need to build muscle through muscle exercises. Your leg muscles will become prominent but that's it. The big reason abs are associated with runners is because they burn enough fat for those muscles to be clearly visible.
>>35507011 Tbh, my did step-brother only did running, but as a sport. He was like top 10 in my country's teenage division sprinting and/or running. He got decently built, but no big arms. So if what you're going for is low BF and defined legs/ass it is good for that.
Sprinting isn't going to make you big, but it will build the muscles engaged in sprinting (though not as much as resistance training).
The main full body benefit of sprinting is that it will have you pumping out natural growth hormone and the like, which will aid muscle development. So coupling sprinting with your normal workout routine is probably an alright idea so long as you are eating.
>>35507011 They will get you lean and give you big strong legs, but a movement that really doesn't involve your upper body will not do anything for your upper body. If you are looking for a minimalist routine you could do sprints, pushups, and pullups and have a pretty solid and balanced physique.
>>35507033 >>35507965 I don't think you understand how fast the flash truly is. He is the most overpowered hero in the DC universe and could easily defeat every other character if he wanted to. Sonic can't even break light speed and in the time it took the other dude's brain to tell his body to teleport the flash would have run a billion laps around him.
>>35508528 The sad part is that they aren't wrong. In the cannon The Flash might as well be god.
>>35508585 The infinite mass thing is more an approximation and an oversimplification. Essentially speaking if you get anything moving above the speed of light, and that thing was physical, then it would have more or less infinite impulse on anything that it touched.
You don't understand how fucking overpowered The Flash is, look at this shit. http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Black_Flash_(New_Earth)
They literally had to make a speedster version of death because nothing else in the cannon could kill them, then they pull this bullshit.
"It came for Wally West to draw him back to the Speed Force, but instead took Linda Park, Wally's girlfriend, into the Speed Force. It later returned to try and take Wally again, freezing time except for those who possessed a connection to the Speed Force. Max Mercury, Jay Garrick, and Jesse Quick all attempted to assist Wally by distracting the Black Flash; Wally finally defeated the Black Flash by racing it to the end of time, to a point where Death would have no meaning, causing it to dissipate."
Keep in mind, that this is just one interpretation, there are other interpretations that are far more bullshit than even this.
>>35508659 >Essentially speaking if you get anything moving above the speed of light, and that thing was physical, then it would have more or less infinite impulse on anything that it touched. This cant be proven theoretically though. >Black Flash by racing it to the end of time, to a point where Death would have no meaning, causing it to dissipate. same way super man killed darkseid
Anyone who can warp space or reality would wreck the flash.
>>35508731 Nothing that is theoretical can really be proven, to be fair. Though I see your point for sure. It's pure postulation, but it's reasonable enough considering all the other bullshit The Flash can do.
>Anyone who can warp space or reality would wreck the flash. I agree, but again to be fair, that also means The Flash could wreck The Flash. Keep in mind The Flash can more or less warp space and reality with the power of 2fast4u.
There's a certain point where superhero's jump the shark, then turn around mid leap and start fucking it in the ass. Once they reach that point they're essentially untouchable because there will always be some way they will be able to overcome anything in the right circumstances and where all their major weaknesses become more or less irrelevant.
There are a lot of superheroes who are in that club, and The Flash just happens to be a card carrying member of it. Meaning that debating his overall power level is more or less pointless since his power level is theoretically infinite under the right circumstances.
tl;dr Mainstream superheroes have gotten kinda gay over the years and people who argue about them are legitimatley missing the point. The only redeeming qualities they have as characters lie in their characterization, and that differs from interpretation to interpretation. Talk about that instead.
>>35511296 Scarlet Witch gained the ability to rewrite the entire universe after training with Dr. Strange, and is generally able to redefine the results of cause/effect relations. It's pretty ridiculous.
