Interval training with the GYMBOSS (giveaway)

19 Oct

Interval training is one of my favorite forms of exercise.  It gets your heart rate up up up, and your workout time decreases.  It’s a really effective form of exercise.

When I’ve done timed interval training outside with a stop watch, it has always been a hassle to look at my watch multiple times to see when I start my all out sprint, or when I can do my recovery jog (okay I totally pay more attention to the second one).

I was lucky enough to have a nifty little tool sent to me that has been keeping me on track.

Meet the GYMBOSS.

This genius exercise tool will either count down whatever time you choose, or can be set for 2 different interval rounds.  I’ve used it both ways and I really like that it comes with 2 alarms that you can hear and one that vibrates. 

The beeps are a bit too loud when I’m workout out early while Jacob is still asleep.  But when I’m outside I probably wouldn’t notice the vibrations as much so the beeps are perfect.

The picture below shows a day I decided to do 15 intervals with a 40 seconds recovery/jog interval then a 20 second work/sprint interval.  The whole workout was 15 minutes long (with a warm up and cool down added in), but felt so much shorter.

Intervals make time go by so quickly and like I said, they are one of my favorite types of exercise.  There is much more than just sprints that you can do with an interval timer, but more on that later another day with a new workout.

As you can see I was given 2 interval times.  One for me, one for a lucky reader!  Will that be you?
