“Studies show that high-intensity interval training (HIIT) increases cardiovascular fitness and can promote healthy blood glucose levels. The short workouts also increased endurance, and a recent study shows why HIIT has more endurance benefits for couch potatoes (than) for pre-trained athletes.” – Bethany Brookshire, Ph.D.
“No pain, no gain.”
No kidding. High-intensity interval training, called ‘HIIT’ for short, is hard. Study after study concludes HIIT is a winner. More endurance, better cardiovascular and heart health, lowered risk of disease. Check, check, and check.
Oh, and HIIT also happens to be a fabulous fat torcher -if you can manage to stick with it. Here’s what you can expect when beginning an HIIT regimen:
“Every square inch of my body is sweating. I’ve been working out for only 15 minutes, and I’m not sure my legs can take any more. They are shaking uncontrollably. Later, I sit down to dinner, and my arms are so exhausted I can’t seem to pick up my spoon.”
The good news (which you’re probably waiting for) is this: an HIIT session can be over and done with in a much shorterperiod than traditional workouts.
