If you want a cardio program that will burn fat and maintain lean muscle and get your body in shape “FAST” before the beach season hits, then the you can’t go past HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training).
Call it what you will, Metabolic Fitness Training, Crossfit, High-Intensity Intermittent Exercise (HIIE), Sprint Interval Training (SIT). HIIT is basically some form of enhanced form interval training, an exercise strategy alternating periods of short intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. HIIT is a form of cardiovascular exercise. Usual HIIT sessions may vary from 4–30 minutes. These short, intense workouts provide improved athletic capacity and condition, improved glucose metabolism, and improved fat burning.
HIIT is excellent for:
• losing body fat (while retaining lean body mass)
• strengthening the cardiovascular system
• developing sport-specific energy systems
• developing “work capacity” (i.e. the ability to tolerate a high level of intensity for a longer period)
• improving fat and carbohydrate oxidation in skeletal muscle
• developing “mental toughness”
• And for the men reading this, it challenges the fast twitch muscle fibres — the fibres that are great for strength, power and looking buff
HIIT is extremely efficient. It lets you get a bigger training effect with less time spent. And compared to an hour long run, shorter HIIT sessions are a lot easier on the joints so you are less prone to overuse injuries.
We call our HIIT training program I.C.E (Intense Cardio Exercise). By being MP Trainers we have been educated by the world’s leading experts in exercise for fat loss. Metabolic Precision’s ICE program is a science based method to not only HIIT training, but also to regulating intensity so that it is safe and effective no matter what your starting level is. Because of the exercise program design of I.C.E it maximizes results in health, fitness and body shape. It’s cardio that burns 3 times more body fat.
