I love this crazy, effective workout because it raises your heart rate, pushes you out of your comfort zone and builds stamina and strength.
All that is a recipe for RESULTS!
Crazy Effective Workout – That’s why I’m a big fan of interval training
You push hard for a short period of time, then break. This rest allows enough recover so that you can push hard again. This start and stop format is metabolically demanding and hard for your body to adapt, too.
It’s an incredible way to burn fat since this type of training releases adrenaline (one of the functions of adrenaline is to break down fat stores and burn them).
Better results less time, that’s a deal that’s hard to refuse!
By design the workouts are customized, because you’ll train at a pace that’s challenging for you. That means a novice athlete will get less work done than the intermediate or advanced athlete. And that’s okay, because you can do more work each time you perform the workout; Getting stronger, faster and more resilient each time you execute it.
