Last week, I outlined an introduction to safe and effective interval training, including a basic interval program.
This week, I‘d like to provide tips on a more advanced type of interval training. Similar to how I train my private clients, this approach incorporates resistance training with an interval program to create a full-body express workout. With the inclusion of resistance training intervals, you have a complete aerobic, anaerobic and muscle toning workout.
Interval training workouts are a great way to add variety and new challenges to your workout routine. Typically, interval training alternates between high-intensity phases and lower-intensity recovery periods, such as what you’ll find in my Smooth Fitness Agile and DMT X2 elliptical Free Audio Workouts. The interval workout method has been proven to improve fitness levels for both beginners and experienced exercisers. Studies also suggest that training in this manner increases the body’s ability to burn fat.
