"Interval training" has become one of those phrases that has taken on a life of its own in the fitness and training industry, along with others like "fat burning" and "heart rate training." The internet, for example, is full of half-baked interval training schemes and ?creative science? regarding the physiological mechanisms underlying this method of training. Unfortunately, scientifically based, but practical information sources on interval training are in short supply.
In this CEU, I will try to build a solid foundation that you can use as you incorporate interval training methods into your practice. Like most topics, we have more to learn about interval training. But, if you read, study, and think about the material to come, you will know far more than most!
