    Interval training Intervals are periods of exercising hard, with rest or low intensity periods inbetween. For example you may run 100 meters at 85% and then 200 at 50% to recover. This is one rep. You may perform this 5-10 times, which would complete the set. Advantages - Can mix aerobic and anaerobic exercise which replicates team games It makes it easier for a coach to see when the athlete isn't trying Disadvantages - It can be hard to keep going when you start to fatigue Can become boring
