High-intensity interval training might seem like it’s only for high-impact workouts, but you can incorporate it into any form of exercise. It’s the perfect way to reap the benefits of longer, steady-state walks in a fraction of the time.
You won’t even have to go full speed ahead if you don’t want to. You can add intervals to your walking by going uphill or simply picking up the pace just a bit (don’t hold onto the handrails if you’re on the treadmill, though!). Putting forth that little bit of extra effort burns more calories and challenges your muscles in a new way. And over time, that can add up to an improvement in your cardiovascular fitness and perhaps even lead to weight loss.
