The Benefits of Interval Training



One of the most effective ways to steadily build strength without burning out by using the interval training process.

Starting is the hardest part of working out. When you do, your brain is often more ready to go than your body. So you start off by hitting the treadmill or the gym with a 30-minute run.

However, many find that when they are 5 minutes into the run, they are huffing and puffing and thinking that this is crazy, I should have never started.

This is where the interval training kicks in as a great solution. By simply resting while still moving your body gets a chance to catch up. When you’re rested, you can start going again.

The interval process is one where you stress your body and then relax long enough to recharge before you start stressing your body again.

It’s surprising how the body catches up when you are still moving but it does. The trick however is to not doing this randomly but rather plan your runs with intervals built in and timed.

The goal with timing the intervals is that as you get in better shape, you reduce the amount of time in rest mode.

And there is another great benefit. By incorporating short bursts of high-intensity activity, you will also burn fat at a higher rate.

The concept can be applied to any cardiovascular exercise.

My favorite for those starting out is to walk up and down hills. The way up you stress your body, heart and lungs but when you come back down, you give your body a chances to recover.

When you are start a running program, start by running for 5 minutes and walking for 5 for a total of 30 minutes. The next time you go out, drop the rest portion (or walking) by one minute until you no longer have to walk.

You’ll find that interval training is good for the mind too. If your body doesn’t get over taxed, then you’ll be motivated to come back out.
