High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

High Intensity Interval Training - HIIT Exercises

The benefits of high intensity interval training (HIIT) have been widely studied. While there has been a lot done to promote longer periods of aerobic work for health, it has only been recently that we’ve seen more studies focus on shorter, more intense sessions. One of the main issues with long, continuous exercises is retention; people get bored and the perceived effort tends to be higher than shorter, more intense exercise. As well, people don’t seem to want to commit an hour or more to longer exercise each day.

HIIT Training Workouts

That is where HIIT training comes in. HIIT training workouts consist of short bursts of high intensity intervals of exercise followed by varied periods of low-intensity active rest, or complete rest. HIIT exercises have been shown to elevate the metabolism turning you into a fat-burning machine. Some HIIT exercises include sprinting, jump rope, jumping, rowing, body weight exercises and many more. The important part is these are done at a high perceived level of effort.

Improve your Fitness & Health with HIIT Exercises & HIIT Training Workouts

Our HIIT Training studies shed light on the fact that HIIT exercises can improve fitness, health and physical function. HIIT training workouts reduce the physiological problems that begin in middle age and continue into old age, and thereby reduces the risk of disease and functional decline. Most notably, this study shows that it doesn’t take much to reap these health benefits, thereby catering to today’s busy world of work, social and family commitments. It’s not about quantity – it’s about quality!
