Interval Training


 Types of Interval Training


High-intensity interval training (HIIT) – is an enhanced form of interval training, an exercise strategy alternating periods of short intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. HIIT is a form of cardiovascular exercise. Usual HIIT sessions may vary from 9–20 minutes. These short, intense workouts provide improved athletic capacity and condition, improved metabolism, and improved fat burning.


Tabata Protocol - regimen that uses 20 seconds of ultra-intense exercises followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated continuously for 4 minutes (8 cycles).


HIIT and Tabata exercise regimens are not for fainthearted,  but the results gained through such workouts are fascinating.

If time is a problem and you have a busy schedule this is fitness regimen you should opt for. It burns a lot of calories and continues to do so even after you finish exercising for at least 24 and up to 48 hours,  firing your metabolism to burn excess fat. It also gives an incredible energy kick so you feel active and more alert. It improves oxygen utilization (oxidative capacity is how much oxygen muscles can use during aerobic exercise. If your muscles are not able to pull the oxygen from the blood stream, then it makes no difference if your lungs are working sufficiently), increase human  growth  hormone production (required to repair damage to tissues and build muscle), improves heart efficiency, reduces insulin dependance, and of course improvement of strength and stamina, endurance and bone density. Overall  it’s a win-win solution for becoming fitter and healthier! :-)

I have personally designed many different Interval Training workouts that work the best for my clients fitness achievements.
