Description of the Sprint 8 Program
The SPRINT 8 program consists of four minutes of sprint intervals - broken out into eight, quick 30-second segments - and 16 minutes of "active rest."
The program includes the following phases:
1.The warm-up period gradually increases your heart rate, respiration and the blood flow to working muscles. The warm-up is controlled by the user to meet their specific needs.
2.Interval training starts immediately after the warm-up with a 30-second sprint interval. Seven recovery intervals of one minute and 30 seconds will alternate with the eight 30-second sprint intervals.
3.The cool-down period helps return your body's systems to resting levels. Less demand is placed on your heart during recovery if an appropriate cool-down takes place following the exercise.
It takes only 20 minutes to complete the SPRINT 8 program!
