Get More Results With Interval Training

What if I told you there was an exercise technique that could burn more calories—and fat—in less time that was also fun?. The amazing workout is called interval training. During interval training, exercisers alternate between high-intensity efforts and low-intensity recovery efforts during a single cardio (aerobic) workout session. It can be as simple as sprinting between two telephone poles and then walking for the next two, or a regimented plan using a stopwatch and specific training schedule. Either way, adding just a couple sessions of interval training to your workouts each week is sure to boost your fitness level, accelerate your fat loss and help you beat boredom.

Here are 7 reasons to try interval training yourself:

Interval training burn more calories. If you’re doing interval training for 20 minutes it can burn as many calories you would in 40 minutes  of steady-state training.

Interval training burns more fat. Doing short bursts of higher-intensity exercise encourages your body to burn body fat as fuel.
Interval training works for all fitness levels.  Beginners, for example, can use interval training to slowly work their way up to higher intensity exercise, such as walk-jog intervals, which can help one work up to running continuously. Advanced exercisers can use high intensity intervals to improve speed, power and performance.

Interval training can boost your fitness level. Studies has shown that participants who engaged in interval training improved their cardiovascular fitness by 13%.

Interval training Helps you change up your workouts for greater results: If your usual routine is to run at a steady pace, or pick one level on the elliptical and stick it out for 30 minutes, you’ll be doing your body a favor by changing up the speed and intensity of your workouts. Interval training can be applied to almost any type of exercise: walking, running, biking, cardio machines, indoor cycling, swimming, dancing—even strength training.

Interval training can combat boredom.. Rather than drudging away at the same boring intensity, interval training keeps your mind engaged and helps your workouts go by faster by breaking down one long workout into smaller.

Interval training means less time in the gym. Since you’re working harder (for a short period), you can get away with shorter workouts when you perform interval training—and the benefits are essentially the same in terms of endurance and calorie burn.
