Why HIIT training?



Studies show that 15 mins of High Intensity Interval training burns more calories than jogging on a treadmill for an hour…. I know which one I prefer!!! What do you prefer? 15 mins if High intensity or jog for an hour on the treadmill???? Personally I couldn’t think of anything worse than using a whole hour out of my day to jog on a treadmill and secondly I would not be able for an hour jogging consistently! Sounds like absolute torture.

What is HIIT – It’s high intensity interval training – these are short and intense burts of of exercises paired with intervals of quick rest periods. This type of intense training causes a sort of metabolic disturbance which can result in the body burning calories at a higher rate up to 48-72 hours later. HIIt also increases metabolism, improves cardiac function, endurance levels get better and so much more.

The thing I love about HIIT training is it can be done anywhere, anytime and it can be done in 15 mins and you’re done for the day. Most HIIT sessions you don’t require any equipment – mainly body weight exercises.

In today’s society who realistically has the time to go to the gym for hours on end? I know I certainly don’t and that is why I love HIIT so much. I get it done and I’m set up for the data and I burn a crazy amount of calories in such a short space of time.
