So what is all the hype about High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)? Is it Safe? Is it Effective? How many Calories can I burn? These are some of the most common questions asked by my clients!
High-intensity interval training (HIIT), also called high-intensity intermittent exercise (HIIE) or sprint interval training (SIT), is a form of interval training, an exercise strategy alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. HIIT is a form of cardiovascular exercise. Usual HIIT sessions may vary from 4–30 minutes. These short, intense workouts provide improved athletic capacity and condition as well as improved glucose metabolism.
Tabata is a high-intensity workout protocol that has fitness and weight-loss benefits. It is also a very short workout. It’s a combination of both CrossFit and circuit training. Tabata training is attractive because it saves a lot of time for people. It offers the maximum benefit with the least amount of time used to get those results.
The name Tabata comes from the man who invented it – Dr. Izumi Tabata, a Japanese physician and researcher. 20/10 means 20 seconds of all-out exercise followed by 10 seconds of rest. This adds up to four minutes total.
