HIIT – High Intensity Interval Training – For some time now, it has been accepted that low-intensity cardio was the best in burning and melting away those fat. But there is a new and exciting way to perform cardio has risen, and it is through High Intensity Interval Training, and this is a pretty simple concept. With HIIT, you can burn more fat while spending less time in your workout. You will transition to very high intensity intervals from low-moderate intensity intervals. In the readouts on the given exercise machines, you will see that low intensity for about 30-45 minutes would burn more calories than 15 minutes or less using the high intensity training. But lots of the calories you burn come after you leave the gym using HIIT.
Doing 15 minutes of HIIT seems to good to be true to lose weight, but it is no easy task, and it is very demanding but time-saving and very rewarding. You will expend more calories by choosing HIIT. High intensity interval training can be performed on different machines, or outdoors. First, start with 30 seconds at a moderate pace, then after 30 seconds, go that extra mile and go as hard as you can. Then when you are done, just repeat. Make sure to increase the intensity level on exercise machines other than treadmill so that it is challenging for you. Now Complete a total of 5-8 intervals in your first time, and you will find it more difficult than it sounds. Take another 3 to 5 minutes to cool down once you are done, or once you are spent, and that’s all you need to do. This will only take about 5-8 minutes of actual working sets, and you are on your way for weight loss and to get rid of those fat.
