I am talking from my own experience and from my practitioners I trained results over the years.
For me it is all about getting better, fitter and stronger – control my body and not the opposite.
But it’s not just from my experience, there is a lot of research done in this field that shows why and how a short workout will get you to your fitness goals.
I guess that all of you guys that are into fitness and sports are familiar with the concept of HIIT (high-intensity interval training).
HIIT – How It Works?
Basically, what you need to do is a high intensity (in other words – get your body out of breath fast) interval workout for about 5 min and that will get your body into a state of survival like.
You will lose weight after the workout for about 72 hours, again, I’m not getting into the science behind that.
(for the once that have no problems with there weight and just want to get fitter you won’t believe what a short workout can do to your body, it can defiantly get your body to the next level)
Try It Out!
If you want to try it out for yourself, you can click this link to download a PDF that I’ve made with a sample HIIT workout routine – try doing it for a week every second day.
With all that being said, it won’t matter what kind of workout you are doing, from HIIT, running, swimming, yoga or even just walking (if you are in that stage of physical capability) – if you don’t pay attention to what you eat, nothing will happen – no workout can compete with a bad eating habit!
But all about that on another post (coming soon!).
The only question left unanswered is why so many people don’t do it all the time?
Well, HIIT workouts are meant to be difficult! If you’ve completed the workout example I’ve linked above, and you could talk and breath normally right after – you haven’t put everything you’ve got into that workout – into yourself!
In The End
If you want to get the full benefits that HIIT workouts can provide, you must do the best that you can and that’s hard, most people will quit after just giving it a try, hell, I’ve seen so many people that stopped in the middle.
Please feel free to ask any question about HIIT – I’ve been implementing HIIT workouts in my training for more than a decade.
It’s not easy, there are days I “just don’t feel like it” but the reward is worth it – especially in those days you don’t feel like working out!
