Interval workouts are one of my favorite ways to beat workout boredom, plus it helps that these workouts burn a lot of calories in a pretty short amount of time. Sometimes I can get stuck in doing the same types of intervals (30 seconds on 30 seconds off) so I put together a “cheat sheet” with different types of interval workouts to get the creative juices flowing.
There is a tabata breakdown, pyramid breakdown and one of the circuits workout formats I like to use. You can do cardio exercises, strength exercises or a combination of the two for each of these formats, and you’ll see how something as simple as changing the type of interval training you do, will really increase the effectiveness of your workout. Plus, I always find having a new workout motivates me to get to the gym!
It’s always a good idea to try something new and keep your body guessing so I hope this cheat sheet is helpful. I’m really into tabata training lately, but let me know which workout is your favorite!
