Or it can be as simple as running as fast as you can for 1 minute, then walking for 2 minutes, repeating that 3-minute interval five times. (Conduct an Internet search of “Tabata” for other options.) Shape magazine says a mere 15 minutes of interval training, three times a week, can deliver better results than jogging on a treadmill for an hour. In addition to preserving muscle while burning fat, these workouts have been found to boost metabolism in the 24 hours afterward. Integrated exertion Rather than scheduling exercise, many are finding ways to distribute exercise over the course of their day, said Jay Cardiello, a celebrity trainer and nutrition expert (jcorebody.com).

Apple looking to hire exercise physiologist, may point to fitness-tracking ‘iWatch’

The winning candidate will “design and run user studies related to cardiovascular fitness & energy expenditure, including calories burned, metabolic rate, aerobic fitness level measurement/tracking and other key physiological measurements,” the posting reads. http://www.sbwire.com/press-releases/p90x3-reviews/sbwire-455028.htm Interested applicants need a broad understanding of tools used to monitor and measure physiological data, as well as experience with indirect calorimetry to measure how much energy people expend while exercising. While Apple is known to offer extensive health benefits to its employees including on-site workout facilities and personal training options the new position will be focused on running studies that will be used to develop new products, according to the posting. That matches up with speculation that the still-unannounced iWatch will be centered around biometrics and fitness tracking.
