crossfit trainingIf you have ever busted your butt in a CrossFit workout or a boot camp you’re already familiar with HIIT or High-Intensity Interval Training. It’s a knockout, drag down, push till you puke somewhat work out if I’m being fair. While it seems to be a favorite fat burning workout and the pick of many personal trainers, it’s plenty of calibers other than merely getting you sweat!

HIIT is also known as high-intensity interval training or even sprint interval training. By definition, it’s a workout strategy when one alternates short extreme sections of anaerobic exercise with extreme and active recovery periods. In comparison, most endurance workouts like rowing, stair- climbing or running keep your pulse and exertion level at a reasonable intensity.

Which are the advantages of HIIT Training?

Well aside from the cardiovascular benefits, it is one of the best fat burning workouts you are able to do! HIIT workouts have a tendency to reduce fasting insulin and increase insulin sensitivity that is related to that nasty abdomen fat or (subcutaneous fat) that we all would like to get rid of!

What Does An HIIT Workout Entail?

Normally speaking the high-intensity portion of the workout is kept up for anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes. I say generally since there’s no precise definition, but the higher the intensity the shorter the speed.  A very popular schedule that people follow is the P90X3 from http://p90x3schedule.net/. It is set for beginners who want to do a fast and demanding workout but are not in the proper shape to do Insanity yet.

The recovery section of the interval training is normally equal to the “intense” part. HIIT workouts can also feature weights or just using your own body weight. Most boot camp or CrossFit workouts follow this kind of interval training. (so you may wish to grab a pair of CrossFit gloves to safeguard your hands)

What Does HIIT Look Like?

It can actually be as easy as a combination of retrieval intervals and Sprints – which most people might be familiar with from their personal training sessions. In the event you are still asking “what is high-intensity interval training” get off your butt and try this:

Fast jog or 60-second sprint followed by a
60-second slow jog or walk

Regardless of what works out the workout itself entails it is certain to be your go-to workout for leaning up and stripping off that last pesky 10 pounds!
