Think Thin Thursday ~ The Rhythm is Gonna Get You

Real Estate Agent with Florida Supreme Realty SL514814

Get you in SHAPE that is!  What kind of music do you like to listen to? Put your ear-buds in and start walking. I know a lot of people who love to walk. I've been doing it ever since I was a little older than one. Got pretty good at it too. 

Today I want to up the ante by adding the thought of interval training to your walks or any of your aerobic exercises that you do. Interval training has to do with any routine which changes its pace between higher intensity and a manageable cadence several times within a single workout. there is no particular rule when you begin except that a heart monitor is an excellent tool to help you find YOUR best beat.

Interval training is not a new concept although its components have been studied more closely in recent times. How long should the intense portion last? How much recovery do I need between the more difficult cycles? Do the cycles need to be equal or can I modify them? We're looking for the musical beats per minute, generally anywhere from 75 to 140 is good. Alternate them and you're on your way.

High intensity workouts should be monitored as in "Heart Rate Monitored." Technology allows us to track our effort to make our workouts more profitable in their efficiency. Theoretically you'll be saving a bunch of time with interval training and probably enjoying the new twists that it brings to your workouts. How you adjust your intervals are completely up to you. It is the BPM or Beats per Minute in your song choices that will typically regulate that. Here is a great example of putting together a playlist for yourself, a 35 minute interval run . I also recomment Run Hundred to get your party started. A simplified high intensity interval training (aka HIIT) article can be found HERE in a Shape magazine article. Spotify users have a nearly unlimited resource to build your HIIT playlists. 


When your Winter workouts seem to be pushing too hard it's time for a break.

Good morning Kevin. Not good at developing a routine but do walk a mile or three daily. Got to get better! Enjoy your day!

Good morning, Kevin J. May I always look forward to your "think thin thursday" posts..... I never wear earbuds at the gym.... I need to focus on the exercise with each rep.... my form and breathing are most important.... I do one day a week of HIIT.... I set up a circuit in the fitness center at the Y... all the equipment I need it there..... I can get through 20 minutes of it... that's my best so far.... but I think I can improve that length of time....

Getting out and walking is so healthy for us and everyone should be able to do it at their own pace and benefit from doing so.

Whenever we had a photo shoot with our clients in the wine country, this song would loosen them us, so that we would get a great photo.  A

Hi Kevin- I think you have to change it up a bit so things don't get stale or that you lose interest. I feel my best when I'm outdoor walking. I still like the gym but it's hard to focus when people want to stop and talk, and talk and talk.
