I don't know about you, but who has time to spend hours in the gym anymore. I mean - if you are off- maybe...but do you really need too. NOPE! H.I.I.T. or high intensity interval training is a method of training that requires short- burst of high intensity exercises followed by short bouts of no-so- intense( active recovery). This method of training is perfect when you are short on time, but also helpful when trying to burn that stubborn body fat. American college of Sports Medicine sited that one of the benefits is helping to improve your blood pressure and cholesterol profiles. I've personally used this method in my own workouts and have found it to be EXTREMELY beneficial for my clients as well.
Oftentimes, I see women walking on the treadmill for 45 minutes-an hour in hope of shedding a few unwanted pounds. I love the treadmill, but it is not the answer in most cases. Steady state cardio is not challenging enough on the body to encourage the improvement in health or fitness. as a matter of fact, it can prove to be detrimental by burning up that hard- earned muscle, which can actually cause you to struggle with weight loss- no matter how healthy you eat.
Building a fit body is directly related to the amount of muscle you have. This is another reason H.I.I.T. is so great,because it preserves lean muscle mass. In other words the method of training is the better option for achieving your fit body. If you are just starting out add a H.I.I.T. sesh into your week. As you progress, add another day for maximum results. I you need a bit more structure to your fitness routine.
