Lose twice as much fat in half the time
I thought I would break away from the norm and talk about training advice today instead of
I tend to get an influx of new clients during March/ April because people who joined gyms
in January, have now lost motivation. They are bored of slogging away on the treadmill or
doing the same tedious gym workouts. They started getting results back in January but seem
to have plateaued. This is because you need to constantly change your workouts and keep
challenging your body.
The answer is High Intensity Interval Training (H.I.I.T.). It’s scientifically proven that high
intensity training will get better results than a long slow steady jog for an hour.
Benefits of H.I.I.T
• It takes much less time. A 20 minute H.I.I.T workout can
be more beneficial than a steady 60 plus minute jog.
• You burn more fat. Not only will you burn more calories in
an intense workout, but your metabolism will be much
higher for the next 24 hours.
• You will become fitter. H.I.I.T will improve your lactate
threshold. Which basically means that you will be able to
push yourself harder before the muscle burn kicks in.
You also don’t need any equipment, so can do this anytime and anywhere.
Here are a couple of examples:
•The actual workout depends on your fitness level, but an
example would be to pick 6 exercises and do each exercise
for 45 seconds as hard as you can with a rest of 30 seconds
in between. Just like circuits. Then repeat 3 times. It’s best to
pick exercises that use many muscle groups, such as burpes. I
know you all love burpes!
•Or you could do hill sprints. 30 seconds sprint up hill as
hard as you can, with a minute walk back down.
Reparations 6-8 times.
The most important thing is to go as hard as you can for the period of time given and enjoy the short rest!
