Variety As A Training Protocol

The only constant is change, as the saying goes. And if you want to continue improving, it's a good idea to regularly change up your routine in the gym. In other words, don't let your workout become routine.

A study published in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise found that just 40 minutes of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) per week was enough to improve aerobic capacity and blood sugar regulation. But to burn fat and improve your blood lipid profile long-distance endurance exercise encompassing 150 minutes per week was more effective.

True Strength Moment: To get the best of both outcomes, you might want to devote a day to HIIT training followed by a day of distance running with a day of weight training in between. 6 weeks later, try alternating between jumping rope and running the stairs. Keep your training fresh and keep the performance gains coming.
