HIIT Thursday 17-6-2010

HIIT = High Intensity Interval Training

What does that mean?
High-intensity interval training (HIIT) or sprint interval training is an exercise strategy that is intended to improve performance with short training sessions. HIIT is a form of cardio which is beneficial to burning fat in a short and intense workout. Usual HIIT sessions may vary from 9–20 minutes. The original protocol set a 2:1 ratio for work to recovery periods. For example, a runner would alternate 15-20 seconds of hard sprinting with 10 seconds of jogging or walking.
Most famous type of HIIT method is TABATA PROTOCOL developed by Dr. Izumi Tabata back in 1996. The method is simple yet so effective in all facet of training methodology. Total burn out in less the 4 minutes.

Who is it for?
Well I would dare say just about anyone involved in any type of sport especially explosive ones(MMA, Sprinting, Rugby, etc…) ,but not ruling out endurance sports (Triathletes, Marathon, etc…). This is also one of the best methods of training proven to shift FAT fast. Enough said.
