I don’t know about you, but I’m hoping for an easy weekend. Yes, I realize I’m saying that on a Sunday but my weekend is Sunday so just go with it. 😉
So to go with that whole easy feeling, I want to share a graphic that FitKit sent out earlier this week about HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). The ironic thing was that my chiropractor (slash boss) had sent out an article to the team about the benefits of HIIT this week week.
Our office is filled with runners, soccer and basketball players, cross fit enthusiasts, as well as other fitness minded folks, it’s important to remember and share the benefits of HIIT training with our patients. We use HIIT workouts in our training sessions but it’s important to share why this type of training is important and some tips on how to incorporate/use it in your workouts.
And that’s what I’m going with today, sharing:
Are you a fan of HIIT workouts?
I have heard such great things about HIIT workouts, but I honestly need a trainer to pace me for them I think. For some reason I have a hard time pushing to my utmost like that, or knowing when to stop and start and whatnot. I did take a class that had some HIIT elements at my gym, and I liked it. I did not, however, continue it, as it cost extra and I am cheap. 😉
I need someone to remind me to do them…
I love HIIT workouts! Nothing better to get a good sweat in a short amount of time! Thanks for sharing the graphic…I’ve heard of Tabata but the others are new to me!
I love HIIT training! It is supposed to be the best for your body. It doesn’t cause cortisol to increase or burn through hormones!
I really need to do more of it… 😉
I have been anxious to find a HIIT workout. Alas, I found one that I really think I’ll love! I’ll let you know how it goes. Thanks for the awesome post! Happy Sunday 🙂
PLEASE let me know how it goes!
This was really interesting, thanks for sharing! My trainer wants me doing more HIIT type runs on my short days. I have done them some but should be better about it. Like Michelle of the ones listed above I have only heard the name of tabata.
Yes I love the 4 minute ones of 20 sec on 10 sec off.
Tabata has been the latest buzz word, so I hadn’t heard of the other two mentioned in the graphic. I think I’ve been doing the Gibala Regime without really knowing it for years. All are good ways to get the heart pumping!!
