Sprint Intervals For Better Body Composition

Sprint Intervals For Better Body Composition

Eric-Fitness Together Newtonville & Auburndale

Steady state is the norm when people talk about doing their cardio for weight loss.  This involves choosing a pace on the treadmill or elliptical and going at the same moderate pace throughout the cardio session.

One way we can speed up the metabolism and jack up EPOC (excess post exercise oxygen consumption), is to perform sprint intervals from time to time.  An example of this type of training could be:

-Jog 20 yards

-Sprint 10 yards

Complete the circuit 5 times through.

Another example used in the gym could be:

-Slow jog on treadmill for 50 seconds

-Sprint on treadmill for 10 seconds

Repeat this process for a total of 8 minutes.

Give these sprinting intervals a try and enjoy the benefits of lower body fat PLUS increased cardiovascular health!
