We all know by now that all exercise is good, based on the proven facts that It can lower cholesterol level, significantly decrease the risk of blood clots, and sometimes reverse heart disease.
Cardiologists are now recommending a minimum of 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise three times a week. The best way to get this kind of activity in without get bored running on the treadmill or even outside, is to do high-intensity interval training, or HIIT. A good HIIT workout, according to recent research, builds heart strength by increasing your ticker’s pumping capacity.
In order to increase the strength of any muscle, one must stress it. A HIIT workout is better than most exercise routines because the rest periods make it possible to complete short workouts at higher intensities. Tranquillity 360 fitness personal trainer Malachi, who is specialises in weight loss and endurance training, have being using HIIT programmes with great success.
Malachi stated, that it is already clear that for HIIT to work to reach its full protentional, one must give it everything, during the high intensity periods of your HIIT workout. Giving it everything you got means that you should be hitting 90-95% percent of your MHR (maximum heart rate).
