HIIT Your Goals With High Intensity
If you are bored with long cardio sessions, tired of your routine, or even just need a fresh start, High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a no-nonsense, high impact solution to seeing and feeling changes fast. Here are the 6 common traits of HIIT training:
1 INTERVALS, INTERVALS, INTERVALS
One of the first things you will notice with HIIT training is that it is made up of a combination of high intensity bursts followed by brief rest periods. By alternating between action and rest, your heart rate stays higher, increasing the effectiveness of the workout. All HIIT sessions vary, but often include intervals where you jump up into the 90% range for short periods of time, but then recover at approximately 65-70% before you start your next interval.
2 EMBRACE EQUIPMENT
HIIT training can be performed with or without equipment. Some forms of HIIT include cardio equipment and weights along with body weight exercises. FIT SERIES by Arena Fitness incorporates a variety of equipment such as Plyo Boxes, Barbells, kettlebells and more to ensure your body is being challenged in different ways.
3 KEEP BURNING
One of the biggest benefits of HIIT training is after one quick session, you can continue to burn calories for up to 24 hours after. This increases the effectiveness of these workouts in comparison to more traditional methods.
4 GET FIGHTING FIT
Unsure what your current level of fitness is like? Step into a HIIT class and you will find out pretty quickly! These sessions will put your fitness to the ultimate test and the exciting part is that with frequent attendance you will notice a rapid improvement in your capabilities over time.
5 NO ONE SIZE FITS ALL
Instead of trying to perform a set number of reps, each person is required to do the best they can in the allocated time interval. The ‘timed interval’ nature of HIIT is therefore much more adaptable for all fitness levels.
6 EVOLVING DAILY
As each HIIT session is entirely different from the next, the good news is that if you don’t like one particular format, its important to try others that may suit your workout style more The variety of classes also ensures that your body is constantly being challenged in new and exciting ways which also makes it even easier to stick with HIIT training.
7 BYE BYE BODY FAT
HIIT training is renowned for its powers of blitzing body fat. Not only does frequent attendance burn a hell of a lot of calories, it also boosts your metabolism overall making it easier to maintain a healthy weight.
