One Great Benefit form Interval Training

Interval Training provides many benefits, increased calorie burn, increased cardiovascular workout, increased metabolism, increased feeling of accomplishment, and many others (notice the word increase being used a lot?). I just recently found out another benefit from using interval training, it can help to increase the bodies way it deals with blood sugars and insulin.

What does this mean exactly?

This means that if your diabetic and you follow a 30 minute interval training routine, you will see improvements in your blood sugar and insulin levels and an increase in your energy output!

How to perform an Interval Routine:
1. Perform a proper warm-up (about 5-10 minutes of cardio at a moderate level) and stretch
2. Decide what your intervals will be. We are going to use walking to make it simple. Lets say you are going to walk for 30 minutes. You will perform a fast walk (about 70-80% of your target heart rate) for about 1-2 minutes. Then you will walk at a moderate pace (about 60-70% of your target heart rate) for about 30 seconds to a minute. Continue this cycle for 30 minutes
3. Cool down. Allow yourself enough time to cool down and bring your hear rate and breathing back to normal. Then do some stretching as needed.

You see interval training is not that complicated and provides so many benefits. Begin your interval training today and see how much more difficult it is then your current "steady eddy" routine!
