Even though (HIIT) High Intensity Interval Training may sound like a little too much for you, I can tell you that it is one of the most amazing, convenient and effective training methods that there are!

Let me tell you a little bit about it. High Intensity Interval Training is one of the most popular ways to burn fat faster. HIIT consists of low to moderate intensity intervals alternated with high intensity intervals.  High intensity intervals are a training technique in which you give all you got for a short period of time while low intensity intervals may be active recovery periods of time.

HIIT keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time. This training also has an after burn effect which will help you burn more fat and calories all throughout your day. The bursts of increased intensity increase the caloric expenditure which results in a better body composition.

Some of the benefits of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) include:

Increase Your Metabolism

There will be a huge boost to your metabolic rate. This boost can last up to 48 hours after your routine.

As mentioned before, this is a very convenient training method for those that do not count with much time during their days to use for a workout. You can get the same or greater results than low intensity longer duration workouts in half the time.

No Equipment Necessary

You can do this training anywhere! Just make sure you give your maximum effort for a short period of time followed by a recovery period and repeat. You can adapt it to your time and space.

What Type of Exercises can be included in HIIT?

  • Running
  • Biking
  • Jump Roping
  • High Knees

Combining weight training with HIIT is the best thing you could do! This will allow you to maintain your muscles and make sure that the weight loss results from fat stored and not muscles.
