Read the article here: For Heart Health, Sprints Match Endurance Training

Short bursts of exercise can benefit heart health just as much as tedious endurance training, a new study suggests.

The research, published in the American Journal of Physiology — Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology, is good news for time-strapped exercisers. It supports the notion that people who engage in brief, high-intensity forms of exercise reap the same cardiovascular health benefits as those who exercise at moderate intensity for a longer period of time.
In a happy coincidence, interval training has also been shown to burn more calories than traditional steady-state cardio and elevate metabolism for a period of hours afterwards, so be add to add some high-intensity intervals to your cardio program.
