Interval training can boost exercise effects while reducing a workout’s length

Interval training can boost exercise effects while reducing a workout’s length | Healthy Living Project | Scoop.it

Want to cut the length of your workout while maintaining or even increasing the benefits? Try interval training, a type of cardiovascular workout in which you alternate bursts of peppier exercise with slower-paced recovery periods.

 

Intervals make you work more efficiently: Your overall intensity is greater, so the length of your workout can be cut by about 20 percent. Plus, a growing body of evidence suggests that this approach yields health benefits comparable or superior to traditional exercise.

Great way to being able to incorporate workouts into someones schedule while at the same time not taking too much time so as to allow more time for other things.

Why does what makes American corporations rich make Americans sick? Support locally grown food markets, companies that make healthy food and care about our health, Eat Free. It's good for us and good for the earth.

Healthy snacks are great because they not only fill you up enough but they also help you stay fit by not snacking on fatty and unhealthy foods.

My Thoughts:

Between sitting on the couch with a tub of ice cream and watching TV or going for a mile run outside in the cold, which would you rather pick? We can agree that the latter doesn’t sound as glamorous—being sweaty, pulling on the athletic gear, and being seen in public a state of matter you wouldn’t be caught dead in are all aspects you dread. But in the long run, it could lead to a better mood, a better body, and a more positive outlook on life. Ice cream and TV may benefit you in the moment, but in the long run, neither things  give you an advantage in life. I’ve found ways to make exercise more enjoyable; first was to change my mindset. Next was to find a routine that was beneficial to my body. Most people make the mistake of starting their first day with a fast-paced 10 mile jog, but that ends up being counterproductive. Not only do you begin to fear exercise, but your body would be sore for the next several days. By finding ways to incorporate exercise slowly into my daily routine, I’ve been noticing the effects on my body, temperament, and even work ethic.
