Interval training workouts are very popular these days and with good reason. They work great!
What most people don’t realize though, is how interval training actually helps your fat loss efforts.
1.It keeps your metabolism elevated for longer periods of time than traditional steady state work (about 48 hours).
2.Interval training workouts increase your mitochondrial capacity. Mitochondria is where fat loss begins in our fat cells.
3. It increases the actual enzymes in your mitochondria to burn fat. So it’s kind of a bonus to reason number two.
So with interval training workouts you actually increase your capacity to burn fat over a greater extent.
