INTERVAL TRAINING JUST GOT REAL
This version of aerobic work is done at around 80 to 85% of HR max. That point, at 85% of your HR max, is generally considered to be the Anaerobic Threshold, though this can vary depending on genetics and fitness level. H.I.T training is a very demanding form of training. It is done for between 5 to 20 minutes generally, depending on fitness level and intensity.
WHAT IS HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING?
This method of training involves bursts of exercise of very high intensity (think sprints) interspersed with short recovery periods of low intensity (like walking). H.I.T has been shown to be more effective in some instances of increasing strength and cardiovascular fitness that steady rate cardio. The great thing here is there’s no more boring treadmill programmes. H.I.T keeps your workouts interesting by varying exercises which ensures you won’t get bored.
WHAT ARE THE DRAWBACKS OF THIS PROGRAMME?
This obviously depends on the individual, but due to the explosive nature of the exercises, it can be can be tough on the joints, so is probably not recommended if you’re recovering from injury. Also keeping your heart rate at a very high level is not recommended for individuals who have had cardiovascular problems. However, if you feel this type of training is for you and you want fast results, the rewards are excellent.
WHAT ARE THE KEY BENEFITS OF H.I.T?
There are many benefits of high intensity training including burring a large amount of calories per session, workouts are relatively shorter than normal cardio session, so it great for people who struggle to commit time. Due to the intense nature of the programme, you can also still burn calories after your workout has ended, but most importantly, it is a tried and tested way of building your strength, conditioning and mental willpower.
