In addition to burning fat and increasing overall fitness levels, different interval methods offer serious versatility. You can easily create a regimen to cater to specific goals, such as losing weight or building upper body strength. For example, biking for a quarter-mile, doing twenty push-ups, and completing quick twenty burpees – all of which you repeat for three sets – is a good way to combine low-intensity training with bursts of high-intensity exercise aimed at a stronger upper body. Other exercises individuals can mix and match include jumping rope, stair climbing, jogging, walking, tuck jumps, and pull-ups. If you want to start simple, stick to one exercise. By walking, jogging, and sprinting for a quarter-mile each and repeating for four sets, you'll have completed a quick and easy interval training session.
