    I’ve tried doing it on my own at the gym by pacing up on my eliptical machine to create a burst of cardio and slowing down and pacing up again..I dont know what difference does it make so far ..I guess I’m just not pushing it hard enough..

    Indeed, interval training is good and would usually end up my gym work out on the thread mill, rotationally running at hi and low speed for 20 mins, and would sweat like crazy at the last 5 mins. I also love the intervals concept mentioned by Craig Ballantyne (of Turbulence Training) that we can easily combine heart pumping outdoor activities e.g. sprinting, jumping and some body weight workout routines.

    Hi there!

    Great post! I love interval training and believe it is the only true cardio out there that can deliver when it comes to burning calories!

    I normally run 3-4 times a week with doing 19-25 minutes of interval training. 5 minute warm up and then 4-5 intense sprints of a minute each followed by a minute rest. Then a cool down of 4-5 minutes.

    It works like a charm and although painful going through the intervals, so worth it! I am glad I came across this post because I don’t see many people talking about the importance of interval training!

    Thanks for the insight and I will be sure to come back for more.
