Interval Training

"A simple definition of interval training is: short, high-intensity cardio excersies (using 90 to 100 percent MHR) alternated with longer periods of lower-intensity cardio (70 to 80 percent of MHR).- Jillian Michaels"

You might be wondering what your MHR, it is your maximum heart rate.
For Woman it's 220 - your age.
For Men it's 226- your age.

A good example of interval training would be going at a faster pace or steeper incline for 2 minutes and then bringing it down a bit (not too much, just enough to recover) for a minute. Then repeat up to 30-40 minutes. When I teach my kickboxing class I always throw in intervals. It helps you burn more calories, while you increase your performance. You can't go wrong with that!


  1. so how willing would you be to sharing your kickboxing routine??? i am teaching every Fridays and needing some more routines!

  2. I am seriously excited about your blog! It's going to keep me motivated when I need it. :)
