Our expert says:
I was referring specifically to cardio training - periods of harder intensity are beneficial. So if for example, you are currently doing 45 minutes of cardio, then you might try to break this up into 3 minutes of higher intensity cardio (at a level that is greater than you usually do), with 6 minutes at your normal intensity, repeated 5 times. That gives 45 minutes in total, but the short periods of high intensity help a lot.
It doesn't mean you have to go out and punish yourself, but if you can weave a few minutes of harder training in among your normal activity, it definitely helps.
