I had a personal trainer tell me that you burn more fat and calories if you run and then walk and then run, etc. during your aerobic portion of your workout. He said that during your 30 minutes slowing to a fast walk brings down your heart rate. By running again, your body has to increase the heart rate and that causes the body to work harder and burn more fat and calories. He also said you should always run uphill and do your walking downhill as it is much better for your skeletal health. Has anyone else heard this?
