You might be a beginner but the idea about HIIT must not be new to you.Yes! High-intensity interval training(HIIT) offers many benefits which includes improving your cardiovascular health, fitness level, energy and endurance in addition to weight loss in lesser time. This blog by CRB Tech Reviews discuss HIIT in details.
HIIT is the no. 2 fitness trend in the world. If you’re just beginning, the technical term for the casual-paced interval training you’re probably doing is fartlek. For instance, sprint as fast, as long as you can, then, run, next walk. HIIT is quite advanced because you get more specific, like one minute of sprints which is followed by 30 seconds of recuperation, then repeat. Also, you’re doing full anaerobic and aerobic thresholds. The more advanced you are at HIIT, the longer the work periods become and shorter the rest periods become.
Intervals of aerobic HIIT have been shown to increase VO2max in comparison to continuous aerobic training, even though HIIT workouts take lesser time to complete. Furthermore, a 2013 Journal study found that 4 weeks of HIIT rowing burned more body fat than traditional rowing. Effective HIIT training will help you lower calories, build lean muscle, lose fat, improve cardiac health, and increase efficiency.
While HIIT training could be an intense way to work out, the great news is your level of exertion is similar to your fitness level. As a beginner, even walking intervals could be used for this type of training — if an adequate amount of intensity is achieved.
This 4-week HIIT plan for beginners is made to introduce you to interval training and ease into it safely; gradually building up your threshold and ability to handle more intensity over time. To avoid injury and overtraining, what is suggested is weekly cross-training schedules to help you create a balanced fitness program.
