You’ve probably heard of High-Intensity Interval Training and the claims of delivering all the benefits of a full-length workout in just 15 minutes. The headlines are correct: HIIT does all that, but what you may not know is that it also does a whole lot more.
Here are three reasons why you need High-Intensity Interval Training in your life:
This may seem a hard claim to quantify, but it’s true. Research shows that people who try HIIT prefer it to continuous aerobic exercise. As a result, they’re more likely to stick with it rather than getting bored and giving up after a couple of weeks.
How many of us have exercise bikes languished in the spare room or the garage? Not only does HITT require no equipment, but you’re much less inclined to give up. The rush of endorphins and adrenaline that follow a lung-busting 15-minute HIIT session is all the incentive you need to keep going.
High Intensity Interval Training doesn’t just improve your cardiovascular health: it has also been shown to ward off a host of diseases. One study has revealed its effectiveness in lowering glucose levels in people with diabetes. It also reduces the risk of blood clots by improving blood vessels’ ability to expand. And that’s not all: by helping your body use oxygen more efficiently, HIIT has been proven to reduce the risk of a heart attack.
You’ll already be aware that HITT burns fat. What you may not know is just how effective it is. HIIT has been proven to rapidly burn visceral fat which can be found around the stomach and is traditionally hard to shift. By cranking up the production of fat-busting enzymes, HIIT makes you leaner while supercharging your aerobic power. In addition, HIIT substantially boosts the production of human growth hormone, known as “the fitness hormone”.
