Advantages of Interval Cardio Exercise

There is increasing amounts of evidence supporting the notion that you can cut your workout time significantly while reaping better benefits with interval training.
  • You burn extra calories for up to 8 hours after your interval session. With jogging you stop burning extra calories when you stop exercising.
  • Your heart and lungs become bigger, stronger & able to take on sudden intense challenges more easily and recover quickly.
  • Your body changes the way you store your carbohydrates in the future. To help fuel future intense interval challenges your body will become more efficient at converting carbs into glucose and glycogen.
  • Glucose and glycogen is anabolic. It burns energy just sitting there. Fat does not.
  • With low-intensity jogging-type cardio your body becomes more efficient at converting carbs to body fat in order to get ready for future low intensity long/endurance jogging sessions. Fat is your body's preferred source of fuel for jogging, whereas glycogen is the preferred source of fuel for interval-type cardio, e. g. 60 second power walk followed by a 30 second jog, & then a 15 second sprint.
