Phoenix Mercury strength & conditioning coach Ben Hadley describes interval training.

Ben Hadley:
A lot of you might be hearing this term ‘interval training’, so let’s talk about interval training. Interval training is basically high-intensity followed by low-intensity or rest.

The benefits of interval training are that you can work at an extraordinarily high level of intensity and slow down so that you are not fatiguing as quickly. As soon as you recover, you are going right back to a high level of training. Some key things to know about interval training however, you should be at a relatively high level of fitness before you try interval training.
