Good information on a buzz topic. I like the fact that the article emphasizes who should and should not try HIIT
Looking forward to incorporating this into my routine
Parents (not televisions) should talk to children during dinnertime.
Don't ever feel bad. It is just part of the process, not a permanent state.
Good article. going to put this into effective today
I can't do HIIT, but I love Strength Training now and working out with weights. I get just a good a cardio burn hitting the weights versus painfully jumping around.
With my joints, I won't be trying this. And if you're on beta-blockers, don't even think about it. Maybe consult your doctor, must if you have any cardio-vascular health conditions, there are safer ways to get fit.
This is good for some people, but if someone is on a beta blocker, there is no way they can get to their target heart rate. Beta blockers keep the heart rate depressed, and kicks in whenever the heart rate gets too high. I was on a beta blocker for years, and there was no way I could ever get to my target heart rate. Just had to do the best I could.
HITT workouts are true game changers...they amp up one's fitness leve with the killer cardio boosts and truly help melt away me! Most fitness gurus now offer options that are both high or low impact. Leslie Sansone has a HITT walking option, and Jessica Smith offers a playlist that provides options. Incorporating HITT workouts has been one of the best things I have done for me recently! Try one...
this was super helpful. I think one of the most helpful bits in this article was the advantages Dean made on HIIT. He affirms the benefits of HIIT and makes a convincing argument for the endurance and functional strength you gain by participating in this kind of training. I might even add the indirect argument against long distance cardio is made because you are including anaerobic and aerobic exercise in your workouts.
DEAN CAN U HELP ME FIND A BEGGINERS LOW IMPACT HIIT TRAINING PROGRAM THAT I CAN BUILD UP TO 30 MINS DAILY 3 TO 4 X WEEKLY? I ALSO LIKE DOING THE KETTLE BELL WORKOUT. I HAD A TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT 4 MONTHS AGO. AND HAVE NOT HAD ANY MAJOR PROBLEMS WITH IT OTHER THAN THE NORMAL ADJUSTMENT THAT IT GOES THRU. I NEED HELP IN THIS AREA TO STAY MOTIVATED LEARNING HOW TO EAT HEALTHIER AND STAY COMMITTED
I just started with Hitt a week ago, now I got another routine.
They just brought in a new sprinting machine at my gym that kicks ass...it’s called the HiTrainer. The 3 minute interval protocols are beyond what I've ever done. After 2 weeks of doing it 3 times a week I already feel a big difference. Check out their website to see some videos www.hitrainer.com
