Interval Training High intensity is one of the most effective ways to quickly lose body fat and improve cardiovascular fitness.
Not only do you burn more calories while you are doing the training, also stimulates metabolism much more than lower intensity training.
Although more difficult, interval training high intensity offers enormous benefits for you.
More calories than low-intensity training burns, which means you can burn more fat in shorter workouts.
Higher intensities stimulate your metabolism much after workouts than lower intensity training.
This means that you continue to burn calories and fat for long periods after completing the training.
Training at higher speeds, as the high-intensity training can dramatically improve athletic performance.
Football players can run faster and recover more quickly between sets. Tennis players can keep chasing balls for the longest points. Even endurance athletes can benefit by teaching their bodies to work at a faster pace.
In general, interval training is best done two or three times a week.
It is a difficult form of cardio and requires no recovery time between sessions.
Interval sessions can last from five to 30 minutes or more, depending on the fitness level of the trainer and the style of the intervals is performed.
Interval training is based on a simple concept: go fast then go slow. Repeat. Sounds easy, but within this simple formula lies a wealth of possibilities.
Remember to do interval training that "fast" is sprinting and slow is your average to above average speed.
The following are some examples of the different times that can be used for interval training:
Go normal speed for two minutes, and then quickly for 30 normal seconds.Go for three minutes for 45 seconds.Go faster normal speed for five minutes quickly for one minute.
You just keep repeating intervals up to 30 minutes.
You can vary the length of the intervals throughout your workout. If you are really interested in accelerating fat burning and increase your fitness, then you will do a quick minute and one minute at normal speed.
Interval training can be performed on almost any cardiovascular machine (including the treadmill, stair machine, stationary bike, elliptical, etc) as well as almost any type of cardiovascular exercise (eg, cycling, swimming, walking , running, etc).
If you are exercising outdoors then instead of time intervals you can use your markers along the way. For example sprinting between a telegraph pole and slow jog to the next, or spread the length of a sports field and then slow jog through it.
Remember to take five minutes to cool down and stretch and let your heart rate slow down after your workout.
