HIIT Training!

Updated: Aug 3, 2021

I am a big fan of high intensity interval training (HIIT) it is absolutely one of the best ways to do effective high calorie burning cardio training, pair this with strength/Resistance training and you have one intense and highly effective routine that you can do just about anywhere!

How it works: Interval training is done by combining timed high intensity intervals with a timed rest or lower intensity period, which has proven to burn calories for much longer than steady state cardio, so you will definitely achieve that lean & toned physique with this type of program. The main reason HIIT works so well for dropping body fat is due to the greater calorie burn that's maintained after the workout is over (sometimes up to 36hrs). In addition to this increase in resting metabolism, HIIT is effective at enhancing the mechanisms in muscle cells that promote fat burning and blunt fat storage.

A HIIT workout can be completed with great success and just about any activity can be used for HIIT training, the idea is to go intense for a set amount of time followed by a recovery period (usually a 2:1 ratio), repeat as necessary depending on your routine and by incorporating strength training within your program, you really are able to get an incredible workout.

You can implement many different exercises into your HIIT routines, these can include sprints, mountain climbers, burpees, push ups, pull ups, high knee runs just to name a few. This really is a great way to get your heart rate up and burn a lot of calories in a short amount of time but make sure you are ready for this sort of routine it can be intense!

Always make sure you check with your Dr. before starting any workout program.

Good luck!!
