INTERVAL TRAINING                     

Are you racing the clock?  No time for long training sessions?

At the same time would you like to increase your sporting performances?

If that is so, then this type of training IS the answer for you!

Interval training is an effective training mechanism that targets improving specific energy systems - the Anaerobic (Lactate system) and the Aerobic Energy system.

When training your energy systems, it is done best when you have a controlled environment. Work with a stationary bike, or a rower or a treadmill and it is easier to get a more precise training session than when working outdoors.


Athletes know that if they get they get their interval training wrong they will lose performance but if they get it right there are huge gains to be had.


There are lots of variables to get right. What to do and when? How many intervals should you do? What intensity should they all be? What rest periods, what exertion levels and what variations should be planned in as part of the same session?


Get these things wrong and you can easily be under training or over training and that will mean that all your work will just be a waste of time.


For many of us nowadays who lead busy lives, and who are time poor - this type of training could be the answer.


It is a proven, time efficient workout that gets results FAST and can be performed in just 30 minutes!

As you become fitter you can increase the intensity of the workout rather than the volume and it won't be long before you will see your times getting faster and you will start to look leaner too.


If you need some ideas with your interval training then there are plenty of these types of workouts in our members area. Some of us like to have something to just follow and do.  We don't always have the time to plan our own training sessions and maybe we cannot afford a personal trainer so, if that is you, then sign up and give them a go.


It's just £18 for the year - Click here
