The less you are able to recover between rounds, the lower your output is the following round. AKA you get TIRED so you can't go as hard.
This isn't necessarily a bad thing and can have benefits. Especially if we want to improve our endurance, less rest can be key.
However, include a variety of interval set ups, some with even MORE rest is also important.
More rest means we can recover more between rounds to be able to work HARDER each and every round, which in turn can help us improve our speed and power!
By including a range of interval set ups in our workouts we can not only improve our cardiovascular health but also our conditioning so we can run or cycle further FASTER. Personal records on longer runs or rides means not only improving our endurance but also our SPEED and our work capacity!
If weight loss or fat loss is your goal, including both less rest in some workouts and more rest in others is key to help you maximize fat loss, improve your insulin sensitivity and even BUILD lean muscle!
But not only can you adjust your work to rest intervals, you can even use a few different cardio workout designs to speed up your results!
