Interval Training

Interval training involves periods of intense exercise interspersed with periods of lesser intensity training.  Interval training is commonly utilized by runners and cyclists but can also be useful to athletes in other sports and for overall fitness and weight loss.  Fitness experts view interval training as an effective means of promoting fat loss as it raises the resting metabolic rate and results in improved athletic performance.  Interval training is different than normal cardiovascular routines where a sustained pace is maintained for an extended period of time.  A variation, high-intensity interval training, consists of alternating cycles of a two to one ratio of intense exercise followed by a period of moderate intenisty.
