Interval Jogging Workout

If you want to join, follow my meetup.

What is interval jogging, you ask?

It’s a HIIT-style workout, but for jogging. Instead of running continuously in the same rhythm for miles or hours at a constant heart rate, we make it harder (and more efficient for fat burn and resistance building) by bringing your heart rate up and then lowering it, alternatively. Works like magic to shock your body, get it out of its comfort zone and therefore increasing metabolism and not developing a plateau.
