What is HIIT and how it can help people?

Reading Time: 3 minutes

HIIT is a robust training that includes short chunks of breathtaking exercises with less recovery time. It is the most efficient way to pump the muscles and burn the fat.

HIIT workout puts high-intensity load on the muscles; therefore, it is efficient to keep the workout between 10 to 30 minutes.

Now, you must be thinking of how HIIT workout is better than my regular 1-hour workout. We will clear this confusion shortly and provide some massive health benefits that are twice than the daily workout.

HIIT is a great way to burn a considerable amount of calories in a short time.

HIIT is one of the best ways to burn calories in a short time. This statement was proved by research in which 30 minutes of HIIT, weight training, running and biking was compared. The results were quite baffling because HIIT burned 25-30% more calories than the other exercises.

In this research, each repetition of HIIT consisted of 20 seconds of endeavour followed by 40 seconds of rest.

It is obvious that the HIIT participant was only exercising for 1/3 time (30 minutes). On the other hand, weight trainer, runner and biker did a lot more.

 Now, if you want to burn more calories in the same mentioned time (30 minutes) then reduce the rest time, and the burning rate will increase to 30-40%.
