The idea for the higher load is twofold: we get exposure to a higher load at a higher heart rate and secondly it encourages/demands interval management, i.e., deliberately choosing when and for how long to rest. What seems frustrating - standing around trying to get it together before continuing - is a critical mental and physical skill. This component is missing in even super rigorous workouts that allow for constant movement.

Both approaches are equally legitimate but train for different adaptations and demands.
