All year long we look forward to the month of December. Celebrating the holidays with family and friends. Remembering old traditions and creating new ones. Reconnecting with people you may not have seen for awhile.
It also means more things being added to our to do lists. Shopping, wrapping, mailing, parties, cooking, etc. To create room for these new to dos, something often has to be removed. For many of us, that something is our workout.
But it doesn't have to be!
Exercise doesn't have to mean a trip to the gym or an hour long session.
I've told my friends and clients for years that if you want to maximize your work-out you should use interval training. We no longer hold on to the belief that you should work-out at a low intensity to burn fat. The bottom line is burning calories. The best way to do this is to incorporate interval training in your workouts. Interval training is when you work hard for a short amount of time (i.e. 1-2 minutes) and then work at a slightly slower pace to recover (i.e. 2-4 minutes).
