    Does running 1 mile a day do anything?

    Is my cut going to be improved? Am I getting fitter? Am I getting faster?

    I run 1 mile in 7 mins. The first two minutes is a warm, a powerwalk essentially, then I run the last 5 mins at about 8mph (13km/h)

    There is no gradient as I am on a treadmill. I want to improve my squash performance and aid my cut (assuming I have a proper diet)

    Of course it helps, any exercises help you. But what matters first is your diet, if you're eating like a pig, your exercises won't do ****.

    Okay ya my diet is quite good, but in what way is this helping? Like is it just from a calorie burning point of view? Or am I getting fitter or faster too?

    Just sprinting won't do the trick, aim for about 15-25 minutes of constant jogging. Maybe some HIIT (Hight Intensity Interval Training) is the right thing for you - Just give it a shot @google.

    You can also get a pulse watch and jog in the desired heart frequency. 60-70% from your max. (220 - your age) for fat loss, and higher for cardiovascular endurance, speed, etc.

    Depending on your goals these are your options for jogging / sprinting.
    You also might switch it up every now and then, the body is adopting to most exercises quite quickly, unfortunately / luckily.
    Do what you always did, get what you always got.

    you're burning more calories, therefore it will help you on your cut. try to continue to improve the time it takes you to run that 1 mile so it continues to get more and more intense
    i like liftin' heavy things repetitively for fun

    I've wondered the same thing...I usually knock out 2 miles a day but at a 8 minute pace. It will always help your cardiovascular system by raising heart rate, plus it gives you some good natural energy! Throw in some tempo runs here and there (sprints in the middle of your run) and it will definitely help. Running is one of the best workout for your core assuming you have proper form. If you have an iPhone download the Nike+GPS app to help log your runs, because it always helps to track and see your progress.

    Yeah it will aid your cut assuming your achieving deficit. And of course your gonna get fitter, maybe not as quickly as someone running more or longer than you do, but people underestimate the power of just getting a bit of cardio in. Personally on cardio days I cycle for 20 minutes at the gym HIIT style then do some core, and then do a 3km run home (but it's easy, mostly downhill). And I add 10-20 minutes of after weights session cardio for good measure. But it's all to your preference, just make sure you meet your calorie requirements.
