The Benefits of High Intensity Interval Training Workouts (HIIT)

Instead of running on a treadmill or stair climber, or lifting weights for hours at a time you can improve your fitness level with High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). In recent studies, fitness experts and scientists have found that those who use HIIT are able to achieve their goals in a shorter period of time than those who use other programs. The concept of HIIT calls for you to work at a maximum heart and respiration rate for shorter bursts, alternating those bursts with lower intensity of longer periods.

While it is true that aerobic training is effective for burning calories, it also takes more time to accomplish your goals. With HIIT you can get more done in less time and get better results. Whereas aerobic workouts will likely burn many calories and perhaps tone muscles to some degree, HIIT burns those calories faster and the muscles get an intense workout that will result in a more “cut” appearance and even more strength.

Try HIIT for 3 to 4 days in a week, while alternating off days with low or moderate workouts, such as walking or hiking on “recovery days” between each HIIT day.

Three benefits of High Intensity Interval Training:

1.       Burn a greater number of Calories without compromising Muscle Mass.

You will indeed calories during a HIIT workout, but will also continue to burn calories up to 24 hours between workouts. HIIT will also stimulate Human Growth Hormones (HGC) and involves muscle fibers that are not used during low to moderate workouts so that you will gain muscle size as well as strength as you burn calories.

2.       No complex or expensive equipment is needed.

Skip the gym or fancy equipment and instead utilize the local parks and playgrounds. Train your body so that your heart rate is increased with running, jumping, and climbing the equipment built for the kiddies, but still perfect for adults to train. Some cities have a training path you can utilize. Check your cities park information for such a park where you live.

3.        Your heart gets a healthy workout.

The Anaerobic training zone you experience will strengthen your heart and improve your cardiovascular fitness, too.
