6 March 2014
Are you trying to lose weight and burn fat before spring and the warmer weather kicks in? Then there is nothing better than a high-intensity interval weight training workout.
High Intensity Interval Training is cardio training that includes short periods of high-intensity exercises, mixed in with intervals of lower intensity exercises.
High Intensity Interval Training is running, short sprints, cycling or using cardio equipment to bring your heart rate 80% above its maximum rate for 30 seconds to two minutes.
Through High Intensity Interval Training you continue to burn fat even after you're done with your workout, which is one of its biggest benefits. With interval training your metabolism works on ‘high’ for hours. High intensity for short time periods allows you to achieve your goals without having to spend a lot of time in the gym because this type of exercising creates an increase in post-exercise metabolism. This increases exercise efficiency.
There are many benefits to this type of workout. It is perfect for any type of weather and is also great for working out in the gym. If you are working out on a treadmill, you can sprint for one minute and then walk again for three minutes. Additionally, High Intensity Interval Training is adaptable. You can change it up according to your fitness goals. But remember, this is an intense workout, rest and follow a healthy diet to recuperate.
