Interval Training

  1. Benefits of interval trainingInterval training works well because the rest periods allow for repeated
    high intensity performance over greater distances and time frames than
    continuous work. Interval training is also not as taxing as continuous high
    intensity work.

This type of training produces very specific training effects [1]. The
depletion-replenishment pattern permits the capacity of the ATP-PC and LA
systems to be increased

  1. * distance/duration
  2. * intensity
  3. * recovery/duration of rest
  4. * type of activity in recovery
  5. * number of sets
  6. * repetitions [2]
  7. You would manipulate these to alter the volume or intensity of training and allow overload.
