What is HIIT? - 19 Aug 2014
HIIT is the acronym for High Intensity Interval Training. HIIT is any workout that alternates short periods of intense exercise with recovery periods. For example: combining five cycles of one-minute intense periods with two-minutes of recovery will total a fifteen minute HIIT workout.
But any workout has be beneficial (especially if it includes the word "intensity" in the title) or you won't do it. So, what are the benefits of HIIT workouts?
10 Minute Solution: High Intensity Interval Training demonstrates five 10-minute HIIT workouts. They are intense, but remember they are short, so the pain will not last for long. Each workout has a unique design, so you will have variety with this DVD.
UFit by Cindy Whitmarsh is a hybrid of HIIT, as it incorporates weights. There are periods of intense cardio, but Cindy uses weights during recovery to perform toning exercises. There are two 20-minute segments: Upper Body Bliss and Lower Body Blast.
One of the toughest interval workouts is Insanity. That is because its intensity/recovery intervals are inverted. The intense work intervals are longer than traditional HIIT, with shorter recovery periods. For extreme results, millions believe in this method. Your library has the Insanity 10 DVD set.
Now that you have some options, choose a DVD and HIIT it!
