WHEN TO USE INTERVALS IN YOUR TRAINING

Now that you know how to build a cardio interval workout, let’s dig into when to add these endorphin-boosting workouts to client training plans.

While you’ll want to adjust the target heart rates for individual clients based on their current fitness level and specific goals, here are a few of the main ways you can add intervals to your clients’ training programs.

INTERVALS FOR WEIGHT LOSS

If you have clients looking to lose some extra pounds (and who doesn’t!?) cardio intervals are a great way to push your clients’ limits. Consider adding some cardio intervals to the end of a weights or strength training session to really make sure they’re emptying the tank with every workout. This depletes their bodies of extra glycogen stores and helps burn fat.

INTERVALS FOR CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH

Whether a client is training to run a race or just wants to stop feeling winded after taking the stairs, cardio intervals are excellent for improving overall cardiovascular health and increasing cardio endurance and speed.

INTERVALS FOR STRENGTH

Finally, while you might need to explain some of the science to your clients looking to increase strength, cardio intervals make an excellent complement to weight training. This is largely because of interval training’s ability to help build type II muscle fibers which support power, force, and speed. Not to mention, incorporating cardio intervals into training plans can help clients train for longer, and more time training means more gains.
