If it is done properly then you will be able to achieve all of this. I do not worry I am going to tell you how to do it properly so you achieve everything you want.
Are you wondering what high intensity interval training is? Well high intensity interval training incorporating periods of intestinal exercise into a low intensity workout.
The interval periods are usually 30-60 seconds long. For example you could be jogging on a treadmill at an easy pace, then for 1 minute you run as fast as you can then for 2 minutes you go back to an easy pace. This could be done many times.
One great method of High Intensity Training : This is a 19 minute run on the treadmill or on the street. It may not seem like long but it's very effective. 5 minute warm up, so this is just a walking pace, then 1 minute as fast as you can, then 2 minute of jogging. That one, you should do that 3 times then have another 5 minute warm down. Altogether that's a very effective 19 minute run.
Try and do that particular run 3-5 times a week without fail! And in no time you will see massive changes.
