    If you can sprint for a full minute, rest 30 seconds, and do it again you're in great shape.

    Spoiler:
    I don't think you can sprint for a minute.


    Advice: Get off the treadmill. Then sprint harder. Full bore, all out, don't save anything, whatever eye of the tiger bullshit. Do this for 30 seconds. Then walk for a minute and do it again. repeat till you throw up a little.

    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer. Join us... or die

    If you can increase the speed then you're not sprinting in the first place. ;)

    It sounds as if you're using a treadmill.

    I second the opinion that you abandon the treadmill and run on a track or the nearest soccer (football) field you can find. I forget the physiological reason as to why it's better, but it just is.

    It's possible to sprint for a full minute - it's called the 400/440 in track and field, and it's the worst event to do in terms of puke-worthy endeavors.
