       Interval training allows you to bounce back and forth between your two training zones to challenge your heart and burn more fat -- research shows that intervals burn 40% more fat than training at a steady heart rate. To add intervals to your workout, alternate between 2-3 minutes of aerobic work and 1-2 minutes of anaerobic work. If you're a walker, you might alternate walking at your regular pace for 2 minutes with a light jog for 1 minute. Runners or cyclists might try fartleks: chose a landmark in the distance (a telephone pole, a fire hydrant, a streetlight) and sprint to the landmark. Drop back to a slower pace until your heart beat slows a bit, then pick a new landmark and sprint again. Though many sports are just now catching on to the idea of interval training,good swimming workouts have always been based on intervals; by challenging our hearts we not only improve endurance, we also pick up speed.
