First of all, what is HIIT? HIIT is High Intensity Interval Training and it is the IDEAL way to workout out if you have a busy schedule. Research has shown that doing 15 minute HIIT workouts three times a week is better for physical fitness progress then jogging on the treadmill for an hour!
ADVANTAGES OF HIIT
HIIT burns higher amounts of fat then your typical workout, not only during your workout, but after! The body goes into hyperdrive and in the 24 hours following a HIIT workout you continue to burn calories and fat at a higher rate. Uhhhhh… I’m in!!!
During active states of HIIT, you are pushing your body to the limit, which means your heart rate is high. This is counteracted by the time spent resting, where you heart rate begins to drop. alternating between these two periods of a high heart rate and low heart rate, trains your heart for increased endurance, aka a healthier heart!
You can do it anywhere!
This may seem like an obvious one, but it’s true. HIIT can be done in your bedroom, your front lawn, your friend’s porch, or even say on the nice green lawn of a park (hint, hint #cheviothillsHT)! It’s time to start thinking of fitness outside of the four walls of a gym and a weight rack. Let’s get to it!
With all that being said, HIIT is where it’s at if you need a quick efficient workout that will get you results. If you need any ideas, you can COME TO A BOOTCAMP (info below) or, if you’re not in the local area, find me on the gram and search #HTcircuitz! Let me know what you try
