The Benefits of Interval Training

Interval training

Many have discovered it's an effective and efficient way to train. It's an excellent way to burn more calories, build endurance quickly and make workouts more interesting because you're alternating high intensity exercises with recovery periods. The Benefits of Interval Training While steady state cardio workouts have their place, interval training can be a more efficient way to train.

Working at an uncomfortable level, even for just 30-60 seconds, puts your body into calorie-burning mode so you can have shorter workouts that give you a little more bang for your buck.

Types of Interval Training

What's great about interval training is the fact that you have a wide variety of options to choose from, all of which elicit different responses depending on what you choose. Just some options:


Keep in mind that, if you really are working at a very high level of intensity, you only want to do interval training about 2-3 nonconsecutive days a week. Your body needs rest and recovery after really hard workouts, so you don't want every single workout to be a killer.

In fact, it's a great idea to work in these different types of interval workouts every week. For example, you could start the week with a high intensity interval workout, then do a more aerobic interval workout the next day. Your high intensity workouts should be shorter while you can go longer with your more aerobic workouts.
