How to burn more fat, build strength and improve endurance FAST? The answer is simple and effective for everyone: HIIT – High Intensity Interval Training. Read here how to do a killer HIIT!
I apply HIIT to running, because it’s a workout proven to be much more effective than normal cardio. Some days just are very busy and hectic, but a running HIIT allows me to always find free time for a workout, because it doesn’t take so much time -awesome! The training consists of a variety of low to moderate intensity intervals and high intensity intervals. The result? Fast and more fat burning than even before! Sounds like the best combination for me and that’s why I do it at least 1 time per week, next to my weight training to find the perfect balance.
Are you ready girls? Here’s how to do it!
1. Start with a general warming up – I prefer to run 7 minutes on a moderate level (50% effort), but you can also choose side lunges, high knees, butt kicks or side bends.
2. At this point I’m doing a high intensity interval of 30 seconds sprinting (maximum effort) followed by a low intensity interval of a 30 second jog. When you’re about to start with HIIT, go for shorter sprints (15 sec) and longer jog intervals (45 sec). When you’re on a more advanced level you can shorter your jog intervals (10 sec).
3. Currently I’m doing 12 intervals. Again, if you’re just starting this workout go for just 8 intervals.
4. Finished the intervals? Don’t forget to cool down! I prefer to run back on a moderate jog level (50% effort).
There you go, that’s all you need to know to do a perfect HIIT and start burning more fat!
