Interval training – why I have grown to love it

Hi all,

 

so I’m all for being productive in the short time we have in the gym. I’ve been going to the gym during my lunch break and soon realised I don’t have enough time to do all I wanted, so started looking at Interval training. I’m sure you can all relate to the frustrations of getting into shape, weight-loss seeming nothing more than a distant promise. Having said that some tips to do so can be found here

I have always been aware of Fartlek (love that word) training and the benefits of training the heart like another muscle, because essentially that what it is!

Below is a little idea of how to structure your Interval training via running/cycling/rowing. In my case I use the treadmill and run at 8mph for 3 mins and rest for 2 mins but you can actively rest (by this I mean a fast walk, keep moving) for more or less time to suit where you are on your journey.

Thanks for reading, have a great weekend
