Our expert says:
I agree with you. I think it is a greatly under-utilised tool and yes it combines cardio and resistance training. It is an interval type training i.e your heart rate goes upand then recovers a bit and this is repeated throughout the workout, which is very effective.
Just keep in mind, however, that if you are training for an endurance event, you would need to do some training where you sustain a high heart rate and cardio activity for longer periods.
So, the best training, is to do interval twice a week and more endurance style twice a week or so.
