or high-intensity interval training, is a training technique in which you go all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short recovery periods. HIIT gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time. Your metabolic rate is higher for hours after. It’s incredibly efficient.
Because you're working in quick bursts with low impact, you can improve your endurance without putting as much stress your heart and body. HIIT cardio makes your heart more efficient, getting oxygen to the muscles more quickly.
Time is a big deal these days and most of us have very little of it to spare. Cardiovascular exercise is famous for burning fat and calories for weight loss. It also makes your heart strong so that it doesn't have to work as hard to pump blood, increases your lung capacity and helps reduce your risk of heart attack, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, and some forms of cancer. In IHP, we do our cardio in what’s known as Tabata, so it only takes 4 minutes to equal 30 minutes of the average cardio.
Tabata is a specific high intensity interval workout that was inspired by Dr. Izumi Tabata. It’s always done in 4 minute intervals with 8 rounds of 20 seconds of high intensity and 10 seconds or rest or active recovery. Dr. Tabata used this protocol in his study on athletes in 1996 to see if it would improve the performance of skaters. He found this method to have the most profound effect on improving the speed of the skaters. Moreover, the skaters in the worst condition improved the most.
Low-impact exercises are less hard on the body, especially our joints, and is a great way to get in a heart-pumping workout while reducing the risk of injury. You’ve probably heard us describe it as always having a hand or a foot on the ground. This way there is no excess jarring or impact on your joints.
Everyone benefits from this class and can do it! So, What are you waiting for? Let's go!
