Agility Work - Interval Training
Most people hear "agility training" and think it's just for professional athletes. That couldn't be further from the truth. Agility work is a fun way to shake up your workout.
What are we talking about exactly? One definition of agility is "the ability to move, change direction, and position the body effectively while under control."
While that certainly pertains to just about every sport, this description covers much of daily living, too. Here's a brief list of what agility workouts can do:
Aid in injury prevention
Improve multi-planar coordination
Increase heart rate and blood flow throughout the body
Increase mind-body connection and help get us focused
Interval Training Precautions and Safety Guidelines
Interval training is a fantastic form of exercise, however, the most common problem associated with interval training is that people tend to get over excited, because of the intense nature of the exercises, and push themselves harder than they normally would. This tends to result in sore muscles and joints, and an increased likelihood of injury. Below are a few precautions you need to take into consideration.
Set a training goal that is realistic and within your current fitness level.
Use a safe warm up routine before starting your intervals.
Start slowly and work toward longer intervals to provide better results.
Maintain a steady but challenging pace throughout the interval.
Increase the repetitions over time.
Reduce your heart rate to 100-110 bpm during the rest interval.
To step up your fitness levels, increase the intensity or duration, but not both at once.
Extend any increases slowly over a period of time.
Train on smooth, flat surfaces.
