Interval training is a type of training that involves a series of high intensity workouts interspersed with rest or relief periods. The high-intensity periods are typically at or close to anaerobic exercise, while the recovery periods involve activity of lower intensity. Varying the intensity of effort exercises the heart muscle, providing a cardiovascular workout, improving aerobic capacity and permitting the person to exercise for longer and/or at more intense levels.
I particularly enjoy working with older athletes since figuring out effective training is more of a coaching challenge. In 2001 Peter Lekisch became the first 60-year-old rider to finish the solo Race Across AMerica in 12 days 20 hours 50 minutes. I had the pleasure of coaching Peter. Many endurance riders are in our 50s and 60s.
