Monday Short Interval Workout

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Today's workout is interval training. Interval training is designed to create a well rounded athlete. It brings levels of low to high intensity exercise all in the same workout. The benefits are a stronger cardiovascular system, increasing your aerobic capacity, building strength, and boosting your metabolism. There are endless variations giving good variety to your workouts. You work harder for a shorter period of time as oppose to an extended workout at a slower pace. Today's workout combines sprints for high intensity exercise and strength training for low intensity. Here is a description of the workout for today:
