HIIT

While we are not professionally trained, here are some tips and info that works for us when it comes to HIIT training.

High intensity interval training (HIIT) is a short 100% effort followed by slow period of active recovery. For example, 30-60 second effort with 1-2 minutes active recovery.

The benefits of HIIT

The major benefit of high intensity interval training (HIIT) is that you can burn fat while building and preserving muscle mass. HIIT helps you to continue burning fat for up to 24 hours after performing a session. In addition, HIIT training increases your metabolism. The best part, you don’t need any equipment and you can do it anywhere, any time – the perfect training regime.

Why we love it

We have been doing HIIT for the last couple of years and have had great results. We have found that it was a quick and easy way to train when you are on go or are time poor.

What to do
One session would be, for example: 10 minute warm up – 5 minute jog, dynamic stretching and 4 run throughs (40m sprint at 85% effort) followed by 6 x 30 second hill sprint with walk back recovery – this should last around 1-2 minutes. Don’t forget to warm down, 5 minute jog and static stretching or if you have one, foam rolling.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE
Before embarking on any new health or fitness regime, please consult a health professional
