What Is HIIT?
And How Will It Help You Burn Fat In Less Time? And that too without affecting your muscles.
HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training. Doing exercises with short rest intervals has a lot of benefits, some of which we will discuss today.
1. Minimum Time. Maximum Output
Honestly, how many of us have a couple of hours to dedicate towards physical fitness?
Job, Travelling, Family, and Friends take up most of our time. Social and professional commitments are two major obstacles for us.
That is why getting maximum output in minimum time is so important for us.
An hour on the treadmill for a week is equivalent to 3 times HIIT a week.
2. HIIT = Fat Incinerator
HIIT will help you melt way that stubborn fat from your belly, inner thighs and lower back.
But How? Intense exertion in short time interval forces our body’s repair cycle to work at its top level. Not only this, our body maintain this state for the next 24 hours. (after doing an HIIT workout)
3. The X Factor
HIIT forces our body to enter anaerobic zone, which is generating energy without presence of air.
Most of the cardio exercises and weight lifting exercises are aerobic and your body adjusts to the movement fairly quick.
When our body adjusts to the movement pattern, it becomes less of a workout as ou body has already figured out a way to do it with minimum effort.
4. Boost HGH and Testosterone Levels Naturally
HIIT forces our body to enhances production HGH and Testosterone, the two hormones that play the most important role in our size and strength.
Testosterone is also known as the “Male Hormone” as it is responsible for features like well-toned muscles, strength, sexual health and body hair.
Testosterone is not important for men, but women too. Poor levels of testosterone are responsible for irregular menstrual cycle, mood swings, fat deposition and weight gain.
Human Growth Hormone aka HGH plays an important role in optimizing and maintaining bone density, height, and other physical attributes.
A recent study has shown that optimizing HGH and Testosterone levels boosted body ability to burn calories by 450%.
If you want to accelerate your weight loss, follow a decent HIIT routine and consider complementing it with natural weight loss supplements. Shying away from supplements may not be a good idea as these supplements provide the nutrients which are rare in our daily diet.
So, How To Inculcate HIIT In Our Regular Workout Schedule?
The best part of HIIT is that you don’t need any special equipment or place . You don’t even need to learn new exercises (you can if you have time but it is not necessary). Simply reducing rest intervals in workouts is a good start.
Skipping, Cycling, and sprints are some of the most easy-to-do HIIT exercises.
And it is so motivating because it provides results in a very short period of time.
Now you must be eager to try HIIT, but don’t overdo it. 2-3 times a week is good enough.
Good diet, proper supplements with a consistent exercise routine will accelerate your muscle gains significantly.
