Abstract : Studies over the past three years have produced the following significant results: Interval training is the most effective and efficient method of modifying all three energy systems, consequently producing the best conditioned individual in the shortest period of time. Physical work should be conducted, employing principles of the interval system. Greater work output and less fatigue are the results. Interval training programs are logistically feasible for the military. Appendix A contains a nomogram developed and validated to measure anaerobic power of the legs; Appendix B is an interval bench stepping program constructed for the 15th Submarine Squadron.
