Short v. Long Intervals

Short v. Long Intervals

There are some obvious caveats here. Maybe the 1:00 and 2:00 intervals weren't effective because the intensity chosen was too low, or the rest chosen was too long. I have a hard time believing that's not at least partly what explains that funny-looking curve. But at the same time, I'm open to the possibility that this graph is telling us something real. When I do short intervals, I often have the tendency to keep the rest very short too, so that the workout ends up being just another "flavor" of the stimulus offered by my usual longer intervals. This is a reminder that there may be benefits taking to a deliberately different approach to short intervals, where the long rests allow you to access a completely different range of intensity.
