How should I do interval weight training?

Interval weight training can burn fat and build muscle at the same time. Here's how to do it: After a brief warm-up, use a weight you can lift for 10 reps, then reduce the weight by half and continue until your muscles begin to burn. Stop, rest 15 seconds, then take the weight up to 75% of your original weight for another 5-10 reps. Immediately reduce the weight by half again and rep out until you hit muscle failure.

Weight intervals are far easier to do on machines since you have to vary the poundage quickly, so stick to them for intervals.
