Here are the Benefits of INTERVAL TRAINING…
Is it better to walk for 30 minutes or interval train for 15 minutes?
Alright team…TIME is always the biggest reason to not exercise. Its crazy the amount of time looking at screens consumes our day or work, kids, friends and so much more distract us from making the time to exercise. So the question I ask you is…Is it better to walk for 30 minutes at the same speed or interval train for 15 minutes? Interval training means allowing your heart rate to get in a safe zone with high intensity movements for a short amount of time then allowing your body and heart rate to get back to a resting state or simply a lower state than your training zone.
My FINAL answer is INTERVAL TRAIN and here is why!!
1. You feel amazing for the rest of the day. With interval training, endorphin production is ramped to the max. Interval training is short bursts of intense activity – this will make your heart rate spike up and you will drip sweat!
2. You save wear and tear on your heart. Because interval training increases your heart's stroke volume, your heart beats less during the course of the day to provide the amount of blood you need flowing to your tissues. A happy heart is a great thing!
3. Helps lower cholesterol levels. Again, cardiovascular exercise has consistently been shown to reduce blood cholesterol. Lower cholesterol has many medical benefits, including lowered risk of heart disease, arthritis, and other inflammatory disorders. ”Who could say “no thanks” to that?
4. You will strengthen your immune system. Your immune system responds positively to regular strenuous exercise. Interval training - due to its intense qualities - yields a heightened immune response. If you exercise regularly, your body builds a “shield” against colds and flu.
So with all that being said – let’s get to moving! Do not let time be your reason to not exercise! I cannot wait to train everyone and work on creative ways to interval train!
