Regular exercise can make all the difference when it comes to weight loss or improved weight control for better management of your PCOS symptoms. And adding different intervals to your exercise regime can improve cardiovascular fitness as well as helping you burn fat faster by using up glycogen in your muscles.
Interval training involves short bursts of more intense exercise in your regular regime. So if walking is your favorite form of exercise, try speeding up your pace for 20 seconds before returning to your normal pace for the rest of the minute.
Begin slowly with, say, five minutes of changing the pace each minute during your walk and aim to eventually build up to adding the increased pace intervals during most of the walk.
Once you feel fitter as a result, you could even try jogging for that 20-second interval in those periods during your walk. As a bonus, interval training tones muscles that are not used during aerobic exercise so it’s a great way to get more of your muscles in shape.
