5. What Are Examples Of HIT?
Sprinting is a perfect example of high intensity training. You run all out for a set period and then rest for a set period. Sprint for 10 seconds then rest for 20 seconds for 8-16 intervals, depending on your physical condition.
In the Peak Fitness Method you go all out for 30 seconds, recuperate for 90 seconds, and repeat a maximum of 8 times. HIT will improve your cardiovascular health more than any other workout. It will increase your speed and endurance and burn fat. And not only will you burn fat, but you’ll do it in a lot less time than someone who is going for a 6 mile jog.
Some other examples of HIT are burpees, squat jumps, burpees, and jump rope. Jogging, swimming, and biking are examples of aerobic exercise that engage the slow twitch muscles and do not produce the same results as HIT.
When you feel like you’re heart's going to beat out of your chest, that’s a good sign that you have crossed over from aerobic to the anaerobic zone and will experience all that we’ve hit on: increased endurance, shorter workout periods, improved cardiovascular health, and fat burning.
