HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is all the rage now and basically can help you say peace out" to conventional cardio not complaining. Any kind of cardio can be used with , because the requirements in your metabolic system and joints are important, but I would caution against running more than a couple of times weekly. I agree with most everything in this site entry, particularly about using HIIT to train as opposed to steady state cardio. When I go to get a jog, yet another thing to mention is, I want to incorporate a little interval training. I actually don't mean to say steady state is awful.

Optimally you'll join resistance training and HIIT, which is maintaining muscle and better for both losing fat. Whether you need to get rid of fat or improve athletic performance or both, you need to include HIIT in your fitness routine. I use among the shredded rubber soccor fields a few minutes jog from my home or a great jogging" course in the woods for my HIIT - I adore working out outside in the good weather. It blows my mind but in the numerous years I Have used both those places for my HIIT I do not think I Have ever seen anyone doing anything but the typical low intensity jog.

Furthermore, researchers in the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Trondheim) reported that subjects with metabolic syndrome-a composite of medical illnesses that increases one's risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes-who followed a 16-week HIIT program had a 100% greater decrease in the fat-generating enzyme fatty acid synthase in comparison to subjects who followed a plan of continuous moderate-intensity exercise.

Note that not all long-term health conditions are suitable for HIIT workouts, and that you should check with your physician or one of our accredited physical therapists to make sure High Intensity Interval Training is best for you. When you have not heard of or read all of Alwyn Cosgrove's research posts on how outstanding HIIT is for fat loss, let me get you up to speed. Each session should last around 35-45 minutes depending on you stick to the rest interval protocols.

A favorite example of a HIIT workout can be running alternating between one that is not more difficult and slower and an extremely fast pace. In order to follow a time schedule, you change between sprints that want roughly 90 percent of your energy, followed by jogging to rest and recuperate or slowly walking. Many studies are now showing that internal training -- including HIIT workouts -- boost greater improvements in VO2max and general fitness abilities than steady-state exercises do. In order to do interval training, this same ratio may be used in every other kind of exercise too.
