What is considered a HIIT workout?
A HIIT workout, or High-Intensity Interval Training, is a type of workout that alternates between short bursts of high-intensity activity and brief periods of recovery. The idea is to push your body hard enough to work harder to recover, resulting in greater calorie burn and a higher fitness level. HIIT is a format of workouts rather than any specific workout. While most people engage in HIIT while running or cycling, you can also implement a HIIT format for strength training and weight training.
There are a few things to consider when designing a HIIT workout. The intervals should be as close to the maximal effort as possible. This means going all out for a brief period, whether sprinting, biking, rowing, jumping jacks, burpees, etc. And the recovery periods should be active, so you keep moving at a lower intensity. This could be a slow jog, walking, light cycling, or lifting. The benefits of HIIT workouts include improved cardiovascular fitness, increased fat burning, and improved insulin sensitivity.
Is HIIT good for fat loss?
Yes, HIIT can be extremely effective for fat loss. In fact, HIIT is often hailed as one of the most efficient ways to exercise for fat loss. This is because HIIT workouts help you burn more calories during and after the workout.
When you do a HIIT workout, your body must work hard to supply the muscles with the necessary energy. This results in an “afterburn effect,” where your body continues to burn calories long after the workout is over. Therefore, HIIT can help you burn more calories in the same time as steady state, leading to greater fat loss.
Additionally, HIIT can help you maintain your muscle mass while losing fat. This is because HIIT workouts help preserve muscle glycogen, which is important for muscle recovery and growth. Therefore, HIIT can help you lose fat without sacrificing your hard-earned muscle mass. So, if you’re looking to lean down and lose some fat, HIIT is definitely a workout style you should consider.
Make sure you’re also making other lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthy diet and maintaining a calorie deficit, as these are essential for fat loss.
What are the 3 types of HIIT workouts?
- Sprint Interval Training: Alternate between short bursts of all-out effort and active rest. For example, sprint for 30 seconds, then jog for 30 seconds. Repeat for a total of 20 minutes.
- Tabata: This type of HIIT workout uses 20 seconds of all-out effort, followed by 10 seconds of rest. Repeat this eight times for a four-minute workout.
- Circuit Training: Alternate between different strength-training exercises and cardio exercises. For example, do a set of push-ups, then jog in place for a minute. Repeat for a total of 30 minutes.
