The athletes were the first to use the intervals. The pioneer of this method was Emil Zatopek from the Czech Republic, who, thanks to his skills, stood on the podium of the Olympic Games four times. Interval training is about regulating the variable pace of exercise, and this allows you to burn fat faster while building muscles. We can distinguish two basic interval methods:
the extensive method, which consists in exercising with moderate intensity with a large number of repetitions and short breaks between sets,
intensive method, the main assumption of which is high exercise intensity, short breaks and fewer repetitions than in the case of the extensive method.

What to look for when deciding on interval training?

First of all, it is important to remember that intense movement should prevail during training. It should be intertwined with moderate periods. Strenuous exercise means training to about 90% of your maximum heart rate, moderate training to 60%. In the initial phase of exercise, it is worth using a heart rate monitor, the indications of which will help you determine the pace of exercise.
