Morning folks!

A new study from the June 2012 issue of the Journal of Applied Physiology shows the new 10-20-30 training concept consists of a warm-up at a low intensity followed by 3-4 blocks of 5 minutes running interspersed by 2 minutes of rest. Each block consists of 5 consecutive 1-minute intervals divided into 30, 20 and 10 seconds of running at a low, moderate and near maximal intensity, respectively. Runners were able to improve performance on a 1500m run by 23 seconds and almost by a minute on a 5km run, despite a 50% reduction in their total amount of training. The runners also had a significant decrease in blood pressure and a reduction in blood cholesterol.

Good news for those of us without a lot of time to dedicate to working out.  Here's a hint: working out for health should never take long for best results.  Check out the reasoning and methodology at crossfit.com.

Have a blessed weekend!
