Work, family responsibilities, school, cooking — your life is busy, challenging, and hectic. Too often, our priorities get shuffled. As a result, our health and workout routines can get pushed to the bottom of our to-do list. Regardless of how chaotic your lifestyle is, you know exercising and moving every day is essential.
When your days are packed and your free time is in short supply, focus on a High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) exercise program. A HITT workout a few times a week is one of the most effective and time-efficient programs you can choose.
When HIIT is performed correctly (and paired with a solid nutritional meal plan), the benefits can be extraordinary. Quite simply, a High-Intensity Interval Training program can help you stay fit, lose weight, increase cardiovascular health, and reduce stress.
HIIT workouts involve short intervals of intense exercise alternated with recovery periods. Although the workout is relatively short, studies reveal that it produces health benefits similar to twice as much moderate-intensity exercise.
The exact high-intensity activity is up to you. It can include running, jogging on a treadmill, biking, jumping rope, or other exercises that have you work at 80 – 90 percent of your maximum heart rate.
No matter which activity you choose, a HIIT workout benefits your overall health and fitness.
The first benefit of HITT that everyone talks about is fat burning. Research shows intense exercise intervals support a healthy metabolism and help the body use and burn energy.
In addition, several HIIT studies have shown significant fat mass loss and a reduction in body composition (the way the body looks). Committing to a HIIT plan will help you be proud of what you see in the mirror.
Science tells us that, after HIIT exercise, your metabolic rate is higher for hours. You heard correctly. One of the ways high-intensity interval training helps you burn calories actually comes after you have finished your workout.
Several studies have demonstrated HIIT’s ability to increase your metabolic rate for hours after exercise. This means you’ll utilize energy better during workouts, burn fat faster, and continue to burn calories long after your training is done. This is a phenomenon known as EPOC (Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption).
EPOC allows the body to continue to burn calories even after you exercise. So, the more intense your HIIT workout is, the greater your EPOC and the more calories you will continue to burn after you’re done exercising.
The afterburn effect occurs because your muscles require more energy to recover after exercise.
One of the biggest advantages of high-intensity interval training is that you can get optimal health benefits in minimal time. This shorter duration makes working out more manageable and enjoyable for many people. No longer is time a barrier to getting your exercise.
A HIIT program can produce the same physical benefits as conventional long-duration endurance training despite taking much less time. It’s ideal not just for older adults or those with some physical limitations. We can all take advantage of this well-studied workout process.
Now that you know the proven benefits of high-intensity interval training, it’s time to join in!
