What is HIIT? Well, if you’ve had a workout routine that you’ve been doing to stay in shape for a while, you probably realize that it can take a ton of time to reach the results that you’re looking for. Over the past ten years, sports science has developed new and innovative techniques to help athletes reach their fitness goals. The result is HIIT or high-intensity interval training which is designed to help you to get those results you want, fast.
If you’ve been looking for a way to get to your goals, then you will enjoy some of our signature programs where we have incorporated HIIT in the fabric of the programs. Our Ripped, Heavey Bag and Ground-and-Pound feature these techniques.
How It Can Help You
HIIT isn’t just all about losing weight, it actually has a massive range of other benefits as well. One really great thing about HIIT is that it can help you to improve the functionality of your metabolism, which will make your body more efficient in a variety of ways beyond fat burning.
You’ll also improve your heart health, improve insulin resistance, and give you faster gains to help you reach your size and tone goals when you rock out to our Ground-and-Pound program.
Why we push HIIT workouts like RIPPED is because the vast majority of the workouts are done without any sort of equipment and still produce amazing results, so it’s worth the investment of time to come in and learn about how to do the routines.
How It Works
For this type of training, you should go as hard as you can for the allotted time that is set. This is usually for a specific amount of repetitions or a predetermined amount of time.
The most common way that it is done is with a 2:1 ratio. For example, if you were going to do 20 seconds of jump squats, they would be followed by 15 seconds of rest, and another 20 seconds of exercise and so forth.
This activates and builds stamina, as well as an increase in fast twitch muscle fibers which is great for young athletes and increasing the pliability of older athletes. These muscles can help you to burn 16% or more of the fat you have stored in your body which is why EvoSportsRI BIG weight loss challenge, Fight2Lose, uses HIIT to achieve great gains for its members.
Time to Heal
It’s important to note that HIIT requires you to take some time to heal in between sessions. This means that it’s great for the business people looking to get a great workout in fewer times a week.
If you are on your fitness journey and looking for a workout that will change up the routine, HIIT is where it’s at! You should definitely spend some time healing and resting so that you can be ready for another session of intense work when you come in to see us.
