    1. Are people seriously soo out of shape that they need to alternate jogging and walking every minute

    2. That is actually the best way to get faster, interval training isn’t a new concept. However this poster doesn’t address a much more important topic and this is of rate. Just “jogging” doesn’t necessarily mean you are exerting yourself. Sure, you might be able to run for a long time continuously, but I can walk for longer.

      Really you want to mix balls to the wall sprinting for a short period (maximum exertion) with active rest for 2x the length of your exertion. Example, run a 400m interval at approximately 1:40 then walk for 3:20. Repeat 6-8 times 2x / week.

    3. 25 does not equal 23
      28 does not equal 25
      30 doesn’t equal 28

      That all seems pretty basic, right?

      Like the idea though. Gotta work on my interval training.

    4. This tip helped me: When you think you have no steam left, you’re actually around 50% of your energy.

    5. see David Goggins on youtube. FTR my advice was for reducing your 2mile run time, the cardio event of the Army Physical Fitness Test.

      The official formula for increasing your speed is to take your goal 2mile run time, lets say conservatively 14 minutes, and divide that by 8.
      So 14min*60sec/min=840 seconds.
      Divide that by 8 so that [840(sec/2mil)]/[ 8 (400meterintervals/2mile)=105 seconds/400mInterval]
      Subtract 5 seconds from each interval (because the goal is to run faster) so you now have 100 seconds/400mInterval or 1:40.

      Repeat 8 times for 2 miles then cool-down by stretching.

      The same can be done for 800m intervals for more low-intensity cardio, only divide by 4 and subtract 10 from each interval.

    6. these are all standard track workouts.

      the point of this poster is that, yes, there are fat people too fat to sustain a jog or run for a given amount of time. I know one, and forsooth I am ashamed.
