New Interval Training Research

New interval training research to report to you today. A study found that 4-6 thirty second sprints (SIT) resulted in the same fat loss as 30-60 minutes slow cardio (ET).

Researchers concluded, "Despite a fraction of the time commitment, run SIT induces similar body composition, V˙O2max, and performance adaptations as ET."

I just bought the study ($25!!!) and will review it over the holidays. Here's the link to the abstract

=> Intervals vs Cardio for Fitness and Fat Loss

My workout today:

1) Hang Clean

2) Deadlift

3) Rack Pull

4A) Sled Drag
4B) Ab Wheel

Maybe some hockey later today. And of course, a few dog walks. Now to go to Freshii for lunch.
