Interval Training and Weight Training Builds Strength and Endurance

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) involves repetitions of short bouts of high-intensity exercise followed by rest. Endurance training interferes with strength training because it triggers different biochemical pathways leading to improvements in either strength or endurance. HIIT is extremely intense and might not interfere with strength gains. British researchers led by Jamie Pugh from Loughborough University in the United Kingdom found that combining resistance exercise with HIIT activated the mTOR pathway and suppressed myostatin, which results in accelerated protein synthesis. Combining HIIT and weight training in a single workout is a good way to build strength and endurance simultaneously. (Physiological Reports, 3(4): E12364, 2015)
