HIIT - High-Intensity Interval Training Port Washington
The Biggest Fitness Explosion
High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a heart-healthy fitness technique that trainers are seeing "twice the results in half the time" using the new revolutionary HIIT approach to short-burst exercise.
An HIIT exercise routine switches between focused bursts of activity and fixed sections of less-intense activity, or sometimes even complete rest. There are a number of different approaches to interval training, and many unique fitness routines that can help you master this highly-effective workout technique.
Competitive Edge Athletics Trainers can help you do it safely.
The Benefits of High-Intensity Interval Training
Aside from HIIT's proven fast results, it also has other benefits. HIIT needs close to no preparation and there is no specific equipment needed. With the tight and restrictive schedules we all live and work with daily, there's not much time to set up equipment and prepare a workout area. Although using a jump-rope or a bike can be helpful to boost your workout, they are by no means necessary to effectively perform HIIT.
When you're doing an HIIT workout, you actually feel and look younger.
With both scientific studies and fitness experts agreeing on the effectiveness of HIIT, you really only need to ask, "How do I start?" Thankfully HIIT is relatively simple to integrate into your current workout.
You should start with about one to two HIIT sessions a week, doing whatever it is you like to do (biking, canoeing, running) only with the HIIT
technique. We always recommend consulting a certified professional for help, like a Competitive Edge Athletics Trainer. Most people do not start with more than one or two HIIT workouts each week because their bodies must adjust to the new, increased workload. Once you have the hang of it, you can add a bit more to your schedule and then eventually add more challenges, such as upping your speed or shortening your rest period.
Whatever your goal with High-Intensity Interval Training, always make sure you are working out safely and with the proper instruction of a professional. Plan your new, innovative HIIT workout routine now!
