The American Heart Association advises that 30 minutes of HIIT is equivalent to achieving 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise!
HIIT, also known as high intensity interval training, is a method of exercise which involves a period of time of high intensity exercise, followed by a rest period of lower intensity exercise.
HIIT has been shown to be an effective tool in
– Increasing cardiovascular fitness,
– Increasing endurance,
– Burning abdominal fat,
– Building muscle and
– Reducing blood pressure.
It is a time efficient and effective form of exercise which can be carried out in as little as 20-30 minutes 2-3 times a week. As we all know, free time is often a limiting factor when it comes to achieving the recommended 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week. So why not achieve the same health goals in a reduced time?
