Quit Jogging, Start Sprinting

Interval training is nothing new, and is something I try to practice while cycling to increase muscle strength. Today I found a good post on lifehacker.com and I followed the rabbit hole to the even better article on The Sydney Morning Herald. Researchers found that brief intervals of high intensity training followed by a slightly longer cool down period, and than repeated, burn the same or more fat than someone who only exercised moderately for an extended time. This was due to the release of a chemical – catecholamines – that helps use fat storage for energy. It’s not for everyone, and the article is pretty boring to read, (science and whatnot), but check it out anyway. Everyone has at least few seconds to get their heart pumping. ~cwall
