This Is What You Didn’t Know About Efficient HIIT Workouts

  1. Are you currently incorporating HIIT workouts into your training, or are you thinking about starting? 
  2. Do you know the real benefits of HIIT workouts? 
  3. Are you interested in transforming your body while being time efficient with your HIIT workouts?

Time efficient HIIT workouts have a lot of benefits to help you get in some quality conditioning and training. Though a good HIIT workout needs to be intelligently programmed if you have covered your bases on this then there are some tremendous benefits to you with this form of training.

Efficient HIIT Workouts 

I know what you’re thinking…coach you’re sounding like one of those late night infomercials. Well, that’s not my intention so just hang with me here for a second.

You see HIIT workouts are the best time efficient workouts you can do. In terms of time and the return on your investment there’s no better form of training than a highly impactful HIIT workout.

Because of this type of effort and demand the interval is probably going to be short depending on the type of work interval you’re doing.

Because you’re putting out so much effort during these intense intervals you’re going to be entering into a hell of an anaerobic bout temporarily taxing your body’s system depriving it of oxygen.

This does a lot of cool shit to your body which is why HIIT has some crazy good benefits you might not be aware of including the following…

Super heart health: Since HIIT workouts increase pressure demand on your arteries this actually gives your blood vessels a workout. Because of the intense bout of exercise blood flow increases in your vessels causing arteries and veins to flex and expand to accommodate the extra flow. This is a hell of an adaptation to consider.

This is great for your vascular system and enhances your heart health. Because of this interval based training can be easier to handle for people that have even had coronary disease.

Enhanced endurance: HIIT workouts have also been shown to enhance endurance. In fact, HIIT can improve your VO2 max which contributes to improved steady state endurance.

So the next time you’re out for long jog make sure you pick up the pace hard for multiple intervals. I guarantee you’ll see your average mile time improve more and more!

Torch calories for hours: EPOC stands for Exercise Post Oxygen Consumption. This is how your body gets back into homeostasis after an intense bout of exercise.

During EPOC you burn a lot of calories until your body returns to a normal state. However, after a HIIT workout you burn a lot more calories in EPOC versus the amount of calories you would burn after more steady state exercise such as a jog, or long bout of cycling.

This process of getting your body back to balance is quite an adaption that efficient HIIT workouts can provide for your body.
