What is HIIT?

 

HIIT = High Intensity Interval Training

Effective energy use – HIIT uses a system that alternates between work hard / high intensity anaerobic workouts with short resting or less intense recovery periods.

That means you burn more fat and calories in the 24 hours after a HIIT workout than you do after, say, a steady-pace run.

What are the benefits of HIIT?

HIIT training has been shown to improve:

• aerobic and anaerobic fitness

• blood pressure

• cardiovascular health

• insulin sensitivity (which helps the exercising muscles more readily use glucose for fuel to make energy)

• cholesterol profiles

• abdominal fat and body weight while maintaining muscle mass
