Let us take a look at the 4 various benefits that interval training brings to an individual:
-FIRST, your cardiovascular system & the heart muscles are strengthened. As you go on performing the exercise day after day, your body gradually adapts to the workouts and the resultant changes better over time. Your body develops new capillaries & develops resistance to the lactate production.
-SECOND, alternating high intensity exercises with low intensity exercises minimizes the risk of injuries and burnouts. You can sustain injuries and burnouts if you practice sustained high intensity exercises as your body might not be able to adapt. Periods of low intensity exercises ensure that your body gets that much required breather.
-THIRD, The American College of Sports Medicine points out that more calories can be burnt with high intensity exercises than that with sustained low intensity exercises. For example: sprints vs. stationary “hamster wheel” cardio
-FOURTH, interval training may be great to sustain your motivation levels. You are not required to devote a long period of time, you will most likely be able to sustain the workout to achieve great results.
