Don’t think you have adequate time to stay in shape but interested in weight loss? You’d be shocked at what you can accomplish in a short duration, if you believe the claims from the Norwegian University of Science and Innovation. Obviously it’s backed by studies and research study, but some traditionalists still don’t buy into High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).
High Intensity Interval Training compared to other exercises
HIIT essentially says that you can get the same quantity of benefits by short bursts of exercise that individuals do by longer sessions. It has actually been around for several years, but for some reason people typically haven’t heard much about it. Those doing HIIT lose more weight than they do in longer less extreme workouts.
How you can start
My favorite approach of HIIT is to get on a treadmill (or outdoors) and alter the speeds. You can start by doing a few minutes of running alternating by a minute or two of slow jog. This way you get more advantages (cardiovascularly and calorie burn) than a consistent pace.
The Norwegian study advised four minute bursts of high intensity. You need to be out of breath at the end of four minutes. But also be careful not to feel like you are going to keel over.
When I am doing the Seven Minute Workout, I likewise do something extremely comparable. This is training with weights, however also getting cardiovascular training at the same time. Again, it’s intensity and fast (seven minutes) but not pushing yourself to the point of total failure. A quick tough exercise can give you more advantages than the traditional path.
