10/29/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Saturday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 30. October 2014 19:53

 After a full week of trying to eat clean, exercise, running after the kids Taekwondo and soccer tournaments, going to work, keeping organized, helping with community projects...the list goes  on and on. It's amazing that it gets so complicated, and tiring. Give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done (sometimes waiting for that pat from anyone else may be a long wait).


 Good Job!


OK, now that we are done with the positive talk, it’s back to work.


One of the ways to reach your fitness goals is through interval training. Interval training is when you alternate increased cardio burn with periods of low-cardio exertion. You have a hard blast of cardio (sprinting on treadmill, sprints, stairs, jumping rope, jumping on a trampoline, Spinning...) followed by a slower pace cardio, or weight training. For example, doing biceps curls, then, for a period of time between 30 seconds and 5 minutes, you run or jump rope, then slow the pace down and go back to lifting.


Research show that you burn more calories, and get a more intense aerobic workout, with interval training than with typical even-paced training. . By pumping up your heart rate, then letting it fall...it's going to strengthen that heart muscle and rev up your metabolism!


Try mixing this type of training into your routine 1-2 times a week to see maximum training results.
