Interval Training

Have you tried Interval training? It is one of the best ways to burn more calories in less time. Internal training is alternating bursts of intense activity with intervals of lighter activity. This type of training is commonly used by personal trainers at the gym.

Why Interval Training?

You will burn more calories alternating “intense” exercises with lighter ones. The more intensely you workout (even for a few seconds) the more calories you’ll burn.

Interval training means working very hard for a few minutes, with intervals of lighter exercising.

What can interval training do for me?

Whether you’re a beginner or you’ve been exercising for years, interval training can help you spice up your workout routine.

Consider the benefits:

  1. You’ll burn more calories then you would with a regular exercise routine. The more intensity you add to your exercise routine, the more calories you’ll burn — even if you just increase intensity for just a few minutes at a time.
  2. Your cardiovascular fitness will improve, you’ll be able to exercise longer and more intensity. Imagine finishing your 60-minute cardio routine in 30 minutes and burning the same amount of calories just by incorporating intensity intervals in your 30 minute routine.It will also spice up your workout. Turning up your intensity in short intervals can add a challenge to your exercise routine.It is easy all you need to do is modify your current routine with short intensity intervals.
