Tennis Cardio Interval, Strength and Conditioning Workout

Higher-intensity exercise does have a whole different impact on the body’s physiology, Everything is more pronounced: your heart rate is higher,... and you’re revving up your cardiovascular system as you would a car. Dr. Eric Topol MD, Scripps Institute

Given that lack of time is the most common reason people give for not incorporating exercise into their lives, conclusions of recent studies that short duration interval training is the most effective for achieving people's health and fitness goals is welcome news.

Jeff Behar of My Best Health Portal recently reported on research showing that shorter but more intense cardio workouts of 10-30 minutes can be more effective for weight loss and battling metabolic disease.

According to the established science of exercise physiology, short duration high intensity interval training workouts also strengthen and activate fast twitch muscle fibers and allow for muscle growth, both of which are necessary for most recreational sports including tennis, golf, biking and skiing.

Beyond the physiologic benefits, people are more likely to find time and be less intimidated by short duration high intensity workouts and thus may work out more regularly.
