This work out apply on anyone of course who want to get in shape faster.
BENEFIT OF HIIT
BURN MORE FAT
It is not simple burning more fat during the work out but you burn more fat and calories in the next 24 hours period of resting time than a steady pace running.
NO EQUIPMENT NECESSARY
You can do anywhere such as home, outside or in the gym as you don’t necessary have to have anything to work with. You can use your own bodyweight (running, jumping etc.) The main thing is to keep that heart rate up high.
LOSS OF BODY FAT/WEIGHT NOT MUSCLE
I guess everyone knows who has been dieting how hard to keep those muscles while you want to lose weight.
the good news on HIIT you can do this and keep those muscles.
HIIT stimulates production of your human growth hormone (HGH) 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.
DOWNSIDE OF HIIT
IT DOES NOT SUIT EVERYONE
You have to have a certain level of fitness otherwise it could cause stress on your heart that can lead into different feelings such as headache, dizziness, or even vomiting.
As HIIT is very high intensity so you might not realise how hard you push your self (although that is the point) so it can damage your muscle and will leave you with muscle soreness.
HIGHER RISK OF INJURY
As you move very fast and intense during this workout and also running out of energy/oxygen you might lose the form of some of the exercises that can lean you into injuries.
If you not sure about it try to find a personal trainer to help you out.
