Multiple Benefits Of High Intensity Interval Training
HIIT or High Intensity Interval Training is characteristically an exercise program that utilizes HIT (High Intensity Training) with cardio training and with active intervals in between. In the process of HIIT, an MHR or Maximum Heart Rate of 80% or better should be reached or a 7 in an effort scale of 1 to 10. Like HIT, training sessions are brief but effort and performance are much more intense or higher. Simply put, it is efficient and effective.
The effective results experienced by those who stayed with the rigors of high intensity interval training basically explains its extraordinary popularity. The motivating reasons for staying with HIIT among enthusiasts are:
It lets the body gets used to efficient utilization of energy, specifically the mitochondria or the power generator of the cell, using the anaerobic systems where most of the energy are generated.
The body is trained to eradicate metabolic wastes like lactic acid which is a by-product of anaerobic energy system with efficiency.
Small muscle fibers that are infrequently used are worked out following the high intensity interval training. The burning of fuel in the form of fats and sugars in these once idle muscles add up to increase the normal metabolism.
HIIT also improves lung capacity with the alternate burst and active interval that normal aerobics cannot achieve.
HIIT can also control, prevent or even reverse the symptoms of metabolic syndrome better and faster that other forms of exercise. The condition that is referred to as metabolic syndrome is indicated by a complicated medical state where triglycerides and bad cholesterol are combined with insulin resistance of the diabetes.
HIIT is also effective in restoring the body mass and bone quality of elderly women in their postmenopausal stage who already lack the hormone estrogen. This works against osteoporosis or bone loss.
There are those who have fought against fats and obesity for eternity and have gone to great extents to lose weight but have failed. High intensity interval training has revolutionized the entire concept of burning fats, developing muscles and strength and in maintaining integrity of bones with its intense bursts and active interval strategy. What about giving it a try?
