The truth is aerobic training seems to be boring.
The first 15 minutes is good, then we enter the monotony zone of thoughts, of which half is stuck somewhere in the air and the other half slowly forms a black cloud with thoughts like “Uh, not to me anymore. I am so bored. “
Many people found this program
What if you could get that the same – even more, even larger – effects achieved in half the shortest time without ever be boring?
I’m talking about aerobic interval training.
What is aerobic interval training?
Aerobic Interval training is training with the exchange of high-intensity interval training with low intensity intervals. A simple example to illustrate: 1 minute fast run, followed by 1 minute of slow running, followed by 1 minute of fast running, followed by … etc.. At this point it is worth mentioning the following: aerobic interval training or training in which the exchange is low and high-intensity intervals is strictly speaking, not aerobic training, but a combination of aerobic and anaerobic.
During the twenty minute interval workout body can burn more “fat” calories than with 30 to 45 minutes of classical, low intensity aerobic exercise. Research has shown that burning fat with interval training is for up to 90x greater than with conventional training. Additional positive effects of interval training are:
- increase aerobic capacity – endurance
- speed up the metabolism and, in contrast to low intensity exercise, even after exercise, which means that the body even at rest consumes more calories
- increase in power and speed
- in contrast to aerobic exercise low intensity also maintain muscle mass
Finally, therefore, the maintenance of muscle mass, is very important, because the muscles are the main consumer of energy.
As with any exercise start gradually and slowly. If you currently run a classic aerobic “slow” exercises, replace for start only one exercise with interval training. After three weeks, replace one and then another one. Three interval workouts per week are sufficient for optimal effect, especially when combined with traditional aerobic or some other form of exercise (eg, training in a fitness center).
Example of a weekly regime:
- MON. Interval training
- TUE. Exercising in the gym
- WED. Interval training
- THU. Watching TV
- FRI. Exercising in the gym
- SAT. Interval training
- SUN. Talking with refrigerator
