“H.I.I.T.” Your Body and Watch It Change!
High intensity interval training is the most effective way to incinerate fat and boost your metabolism. H.I.I.T. is so powerful it only needs to be done three days a week to be effective.
In fact, any more may over tax your body. The reason H.I.I.T. is so effective for weight loss is that not only will you burn more calories while doing it, your body will continue to burn calories long after you have finished your workout. We’re talking hours later. And the majority of these calories come from FAT! Regular slow motion cardio programs will do nothing for you once you’ve pushed the stop button. Another benefit of using H.I.I.T. is that you will get in unbelievable cardiovascular shape. Your endurance will sky rocket allowing you to perform better and better at your workouts. That means more and more calories and a faster metabolism awaits you in the future. It’s like a “snowball effect”; you will continue to get fitter and fitter as your program continues.
Here’s the low down on H.I.I.T.
Basically H.I.I.T. is where you push your intensity to your maximum level. H.I.I.T. uses a scale of 1 to 10 to identify your intensity level or how hard you are working. Where 1 =no effort, like laying on the couch and 10= MAX, the point at which you cannot sustain this effort for any significant amount of time. Notice that you are briefly at a level 10. Your objective is to reach complete failure where you can no longer continue and must recover from your efforts.
Many people use some form of an interval training program to work out, but H.I.I.T. is different in that you are trying to push your body to maximum capacity. Every new set of intervals you give 100% of yourself. Over time the amount of work you achieve during your workouts will be greater and greater. Greater workloads will pay out to be more fat burned and a faster metabolism.
Week after week you will notice your body and your fitness level change.
Traditional workouts base their caloric burning on duration. The longer you workout the more calories you burn. If you don’t mind waiting on your results take this path. If you want fast results choose H.I.I.T. On the H.I.I.T. program you are going to amplify your effort each workout while saving time and getting in the best shape of your life!
