The Greatist’s Complete Guide to Interval Training

August 22, 2011

Get Movin'

Once again, I’d like to share yet another great illustrative guide from www.greatist.com.

This time it’s about Interval training & HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), one of my all time favorites!

Here is why I love it:

  • cut down on training time
  • burn more calories… and keep burning them all day long!
  • leads to many physiological changes: increase of VO2 max (maximum amount of oxygen you can take in while exercising), & increases tolerance to the build-up of lactic acid
  • avoiding catabolic state (loss of muscle mass that can occur with long periods of moderate intensity training)
  • helps avoid injuries associated with repetitive overuse (common in endurance training)
  • oh, and did I mention that it was less boring & repetitive?
