HIIT (High-intensity interval Training) has become a very popular training style recently, but understanding how to do it efficiently isn’t as easy as it may seem.
A HIIT workout session involves you intervals of exercise that ranges from between 10 seconds and eight minutes duration, working at around 80-90% of your maximum heart rate for that duration.
When performed properly, high-intensity interval training — in which more repetitions of an exercise are done in less time, combined with rest periods — can definitely result in improved cardiac function, substantial weight loss, and improved blood glucose levels.
Most experts say that more than two sessions per week are necessary for improving performance without bringing excessive stress, and Stephen Seiler, considered to be one of the world’s foremost experts of HIIT, says more than two sessions per week have no added benefit and would amplify the likelihood muscle strain.
Anyone can add interval training to their routine. For beginners who walk outdoors, you’ll need to find objects at regularly spaced distances when walking or running, such as telephone poles, and use them to judge your intervals. Start your way to fitness!
