Old School Lamppost Interval Training for Quick Fitness Gains

While I don't really use Twitter, I do check it from time to time to see if the coaches I follow have put up anything interesting.


This from Mike Boyle fid not disappoint:


This tip is not new

Most of the really useful info isn't (hence why all claims of "new" or "revolutionary" should be taken with a large pinch of salt)


I was first told about Lamppost Interval Training by my first coach, karate instructor Sensei Jack Parker

I think he missed a trick by not registering Lamppost Interval Training as a trademark, I could run weekend LIT certifications.....


Anyway, back to the story


Jack was a huge proponent of what he called "recovery training" or the ability to recover quickly from an effort.

This kind of interval work was a key part of that training.


For today's current lockdown situation, we are allowed out for daily exercise.

Once per day so long as you maintain social distancing.


So why not run, and why not run Lamppost Intervals?


If you're a non runner, the your intervals could be walk/jog

It could be jog/run

It could be run/sprint


You could vary the speeds from slow to medium to fast


There's several options

You just have to do it, 2-3 sessions per week is ideal.

But you can make it interesting, and it's free and very very effective
