HIIT – The Workout For Serious Athletes

HIIT has been called by many names. Body for Life, wind sprints or more but whatever the name it all stands for the same thing. The absolute fastest ways to shed fat and gain lean beautiful muscle. These are the exercises that will quickly separate the casual exercisers from the serious athletes. Interval training has been around a long time most athletes have been doing it for years and now you to can get in on one of the fastest ways to get rid of that muffin top and love handles.

The fact that in the past few years' interval training has gotten a lot of attention and HIIT is at the center of it. Intervals is the best thing to happen to weight loss in years and the fact that it is just now getting attention comes as a surprise to some. Athletes that train as part of their participation in the sports world all know of the benefits of HIIT training.

Interval training is really quite simple. They are just short intestine burst of exercise alternated with low intensity ones. The high intensity and low intensity act as a catalyst for each other. The body is given mixed signals which makes it work harder to keep up with the frequency of the changes. Without the low intensity recuperation you will not sustain the energy needed to make the high intensity as severe as it needs to be. If you do not have those you will not get the full benefits that send your progress off the charts and makes that fat really sizzle.

It is entirely possible for someone carrying a lot of body fat to actually train and finish a marathon without losing a pound. How is this possible you may well wonder? The body that moves long and slow trains the muscles to expect just that. They became used to this and no more. It takes the HIIT to get the body to come out of its lethargic state and begin to burn like a powerhouse. For fast effective fat burning slow and steady will never win the race.

If you are looking to run an endurance race, sure this will work for you but also you will need to include distance training as well. But if you want to just get rid of that fat you have been carrying around for far too long then this is just what you need. You can get the fast results that you have been searching for by incorporating HIIT training into your exercise schedule.

HIIT is quickly becoming the exercise method of choice for millions around the world. Do not you owe it to your self to give your body every opportunity to become is fittest and leanest form possible. Try HIIT for your self you will be more than satisfied with the results. And you will see results, fast. Build a full workout routine with high intensity interval training and you will be showing off that beach body in no time.
