Shorter Intervals, Better Workouts

Shorter Intervals

Better Workouts

In a Study in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, researchers divvied up a 24-minute cardio workout several ways, each with intervals ranging from 30 seconds to two minutes. Though all the patterns added up to the same amount of "work" time, exercicers who did intervals of one minute or less reported feeling less whipped even though they worked just as hard. So, on your next ride or run, try pushing it for 30 seconds a pop.
