HOW?

It’s not complicated. It is simply alternative bursts of intense activity with intervals of lighter activity.

  • Incorporate short burst of faster walking into your leisurely walking routine.
  • Incorporate short bursts of jogging into your brisk walk routine.
  • Incorporate short bursts of sprinting into your jogging routine.
    Sprint from 1-3 mailboxes, jog 1-3; sprint 1-4 mailboxes, jog 1-4; sprint 1-5 mailboxes, jog 1-5; sprint 1-6, jog 1-6. You get the picture. Then flip it. 1-6;1-5; 1-4; 1-3. Rinse & repeat.

Benefits:

  • You’ll burn more calories.
  • You’ll be able to get workouts in less time. Even 20-25 minutes can deliver an awesome workout and fire up your metabolism.
  • You’ll squish the boredom. Spice up your walk, jog, or run.
  • You don’t need special equipment. Just a decent pair of running shoes.
  • You will build more lean muscle! Just look at the average body of a sprinter. Lots of lean muscle! Intervals release growth hormone into our bodies helping build lean muscle.
