Pump up your progress with rut-busting tempo training. You’ll pace yourself through an interval burst, followed by active recovery. When it comes to exercise, slow and steady DOESN’T win the race. Instead, think SHORT WORKOUTS, BIG RESULTS! Here’s what happens to your body when you incorporate tempo training into your routine…
• Your belly will get flatter, faster
• You’ll slash your risk of diabetes
• Your heart will get healthier and stronger
• Your body will get more defined and you’ll have more strength
• Your bone density will increase
But the real WOW factor behind tempo training is its ability to reverse the declining ability of our cells to create energy. A recent study conducted by Mayo Clinic found that in a group of older volunteers, pace training boosted the ability of the mitochondria within cells to generate energy by 69%.
This is important, because as you age, your mitochondrial activity declines, which can diminish the size and ability of your muscles to burn excess blood sugar… putting you at risk for diabetes. But, this study found that after three months of interval training, participants experienced the mitochondria functions found in young people.
