Many people use the excuse of not having enough time in a day to exercise. With all the research and positive results found from HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) there is no excuse! All you need is less than 30 minutes a day to make a big difference in the way you look and feel.
What is HIIT Training?
HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training. Wikipedia defines HIIT as an “enhanced form of interval training, an exercise strategy alternating periods of short intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. HIIT is a form of cardiovascular exercise. Usual HIIT sessions may vary from 4–30 minutes. These short, intense workouts provide improved athletic capacity and condition, improved glucose metabolism, and improved fat burning.”
Although there is not a specific time or regimen used, an effective formula is 2:1 work to recovery ratio. This is the ratio used for the FreeMotion Fitness LIVE AXIS 16 minute HIIT workout. The workout consists of 40 seconds of work with 20 seconds of rest. Each exercise utilizes the LIVE AXIS High and Low pull; incorporating compound movements which targets multiple muscle groups encouraging an increased calorie burn and greater cardiovascular gains.
Who would benefit the most from HIIT Training?
Almost anyone can benefit from improved fat burning, increased cardiovascular capacity, enhanced coordination, and improved glucose metabolism! There is no wonder why all the craze right now in the fitness industry surrounds this type of training. Results in less time appeals to everyone and HIIT can benefit an individual with the goal of muscle gain or weight loss.
What kind of results can you expect?
1. Accelerated FAT LOSS
2. Increased fitness in Less Time
3. Supercharged Metabolism because of a boosted resting metabolism
4. Improved Endurance
