High Intensity Interval Training is working smarter and harder. Yes Harder. The key is intensity. Working at 85-110% of your maximum heart rate, or 8-10/10 Rate of Perceived Exertion. That's right out of breath, heart pounding, sweat dripping to the floor intensity.
The positive side, apart from the session being short, RESULTS. At 2-3 Sessions a week, 25-45 minutes maximum, results are noticeable in 6 short weeks. Decreased body-fat, increased strength, weightloss, and improved cardiovascular function.
Next time you think you don't have time for a workout think again. Get your heart rate up and keep it up. Interested in implementing High Intensity Training to your workouts, try compound movements, little rest between sets, active rest, plyometrics, TABATA, and lifting at 80% of your 1 rep maximum. Get sweaty with HIIT today!
