5 Reasons To Do High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
High Intensity Interval Training or HIIT is a a great way to workout more efficiently by spending less time but turning on the fat burning machine in your body to burn while you are not working out. Cardio exercise is great for the heart but so is HIIT. Cardio will not allow you to lose fat and develop a nice shapely body that most of us want. HIIT incorporates weight training as well as cardio so you are going to see nice results, weight loss and muscles built.
1. Increase Efficiency
HIIT gives you the same physiological results as long duration cardio exercise in a fraction of the time. HIIT utilizes both aerobic and anaerobic fitness while traditional, cardio workouts only addresses aerobic. Aerobic fitness increases your need for oxygen and anaerobic training builds muscle, thus, these workouts will increase your endurance and make you stronger at the same time. Studies indicate as little as 27 minutes of HIIT three times per week produces the same anaerobic and aerobic improvement as 60 minutes of steady state cardio five times per week, so you can have more time for everything else in your life.
