This was a fascinating podcast conversation for me. I geek out on this stuff, because I've been doing different versions of interval training for decades. It was fantastic to talk to someone who spends his life studying the effectiveness of interval training, to get his specific perspective and recommendations (of which this interval is full of!) Martin is incredibly personable, sharing stories from his life and lab, and puts things into very easy to understand perspective about training effectiveness. It also had the bonus effect for me of motivating me to get out and do some intervals on days when I only have 15-20 minutes.
