Are you already tired from spending hours and hours of the week or a month on the running belt or exercise bike just to lose a few pounds?
We have prepared a training, which you are going to love. It will bring visible results.
This training is High Intensity Interval Training also known as HIIT.
What is interval training (HIIT)?
Interval training is a method where the period with weight with high and very high intensity (interval) is regularly changed with an interval of rest (usually passive.)
This type of training is exercised only 15-30 minutes. It is suitable only for those who do not have time and do not fancy spending hours in a gym but want to have visible and relatively fast results.
Interval training and losing weight
In comparison with medium intensity exercises, it is scientifically proven that by interval training there is 6 times higher loss of fat mass during the same period of time. HIIT training is one of the best ways how to lose weight fast.
It is not true anymore that the body burns only after 30 minute activity and short exercise is not worth it. It is also not true that you must be really exhausted after exercise.
But be careful! It does not mean that you should exercise with this method every day!
HIIT training is suitable for everyone (except for absolute beginners and patients with cardiologic problems) who wants to really exercise.
The weight period and rest period can be in the ratio 1:1 or 1:2. If this is still too hard for you, it is possible to exercise in the ratio 1:3. Just bear in mind that the intensity of exercise should be as high as possible.
Most popular high intensity workouts
Interval training may have several forms. The following trainings are the most very popular:
