A HIIT session often consists of a warm up period of exercise, followed by three to ten repetitions of high intensity exercise, separated by medium intensity exercise for recovery, and ending with a period of cool down exercise.
The high intensity exercise should be done at near maximum intensity. The medium exercise should be about 50% intensity. Tabata, a version of HIIT was based on a study by Professor Izumi Tabata and uses 20 seconds of ultra-intense exercise followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated continuously for 4 minutes (8 cycles).
Benefits of High Intensity Interval Training
Super-efficient HIIT is the ideal workout for a busy schedule—whether you want to squeeze in a workout during your lunch break or to get in shape for a fast-approaching event. Research shows you can achieve more progress in a mere 15 minutes of interval training (done three times a week) than the girl jogging on the treadmill for an hour. (A 10-minute fat-blasting cardio routine that burns more calories than a half hour on the treadmill!)
2. Burn More Fat:
Not only do you burn more calories during a HIIT workout, but the effect of all that intense exertion kicks your body’s repair cycle into hyperdrive. That means you burn more fat and calories in the 24 hours after a HIIT workout than you do after, say, a steady-pace run.
3. Healthier Heart:
Most people aren’t used to pushing into the anaerobic zone (that lovely place where you can’t breathe and you feel like your heart is trying to jump out of your chest). But in this case, extreme training produces extreme results. One 2006 study found that after 8 weeks of doing HIIT workouts, subjects could bicycle twice as long as they could before the study, while maintaining the same pace.
4. No Equipment Necessary:
Running, biking, jump roping, and rowing all work great for HIIT, but you don’t need any equipment to get it done. High knees, fast feet, or anything plyometric like jumping lunges work just as well to get your heart rate up fast. In fact, some equipment like dumbbells can make HIIT less effective because you want the focus to be on pushing your heart to its max, not your biceps.
5. Lose Weight, Not Muscle:
Anyone who has been on a diet knows that it’s hard to not lose muscle mass along with fat. While steady state cardio seems to encourage muscle loss, studies show that both weight training and HIIT workouts allow dieters to preserve their hard-earned muscles while ensuring most of the weight lost comes from fat stores. Win/win!
6. Increase Metabolism:
In addition to increased fat burning and more muscle preserved, HIIT stimulates production of your human growth hormone (HGH) by up to 450 percent during the 24 hours after you finish your workout. This is great news since HGH is not only responsible for increased caloric burn but also slows down the aging process, making you younger both inside and out!
7. Do It Anywhere:
You can do it in a boat, you can do it with a goat. You can do it here or there, you can do it anywhere! Dr. Seuss would have loved HIIT. Since it’s such a simple concept—go at maximum effort for a short period of time followed by a recovery period and repeat—you can adapt it to whatever time and space constraints you have.
This is not a workout you can do while reading a magazine or chatting with your friend. Because it’s so short, you will be working hard the whole time. The trade-off is this format offers seasoned exercisers a new challenge and new exercisers a quick way to see results. You may be in pain, you may be sucking wind, but you definitely won’t be bored!
The TRX system enables hundreds of exercises and progressions for every body part using nothing but the exerciser’s own body weight to generate resistance. The TRX Suspension Training is a leverage body weight exercise which safely builds power, strength, flexibility, balance & mobility.

Heart rate monitoring is an essential part of your fitness journey. See your cardiovascular performance, track your progress and know how many calories you are burning. Fat is burned in all the heart rate zones; it’s the burn rate that’s the key factor. A heart rate monitor serves as a guide to make sure you train according to the demands of your workout in conjunction with your target heart rate.
As long as you’re taking the time to exercise, you might as well stop guessing what your heart rate is and start getting acquainted with a machine whose sole purpose for existing, is to help you reach your goals! It is simply one of the best tools to help keep you accountable for training at the intensities that are right for you. It’s easy to get started at Beachside Ryde Fitness Studio in West Palm Beach.
