    Wow, we’re on the exact same page here…I’m just writing an article about Fartlek training. I think it’s a really creative version of a HIIT workout routine that can certainly benefit athletes (soccer players for sure). Great info!

      Right on Dave – looking forward to reading your spin on it!

      It really is a cool workout – I like that you don’t have to be super structured with it either. If you go outside for a cardio workout or just to mess around on the court or field, chances are you’ll unknowingly be fartleking! 😉

    I must admit I’ve never heard of Fartlek Training, even though, like you mentioned, it’s identical to interval training.

    I do this type of training when I hit the track for my sprinting workouts. Check out workout #3 on my post http://www.bloomtofit.com/sprint-training-sprinting-workouts-part-2

    If this is Fartlek training then I’ve been doing it for some time and it creates AMAZING results!!
