Basic Definition--> 20 seconds of high intensity training followed by 10 seconds of rest. Repeat for 8 rounds= 4 minutes. Individuals who perform Tabata style training can improve their aerobic and anerobic endurance. There are many styles of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and this is just one of them that is highly effective. HIIT is time efficient and a great way to get into shape. It's even more effective than training at a moderate intensity for 60 minutes.
Ten years ago when we said "you need 60 minutes of moderate to high intensity exercise a day" the world protested. Ten years ago our society was still some what "active" during the day. We didn't have smartphones, iPads, electronic billing, one stop shopping at our fingertips, we actually had to move our bodies around in order to get things done. Well, those days are over. The majority of our population sits and sits all day. They don't have to move, everything is right there at their finger tips.
When you think about your health and fitness goals, have you ever felt like life keeps getting in the way of what you are trying to accomplish? I know I have! I have fitness goals and nutrition goals that I feel I could achieve in no time flat if LIFE didn't keep getting in the way!You know the things I am talking about...running kids to where they need to be, injury, recovery, fatigue, special occasions, cook outs, family, friends, church, birthdays, anniversary, job,.... all these things seem to get in the way of finding time to work out and being in control of my eating!
What strategy I have to choose in hot, humid weather?Strategy 1 - keep up my daily calories intake (because in hot environment appetite diminished).Strategy 2 - eat food that not standing too long in stomack.Strategy 3 - exercise in the coolest time of the day.According to that, I woke up at 5 a.m.5 a.m. - liquid breakfast.Proteins, electrolytes, carbs.Coffee, water.5 30 - 7 a.m. - Run. During activity I try to drink more and use different body-cooling techniques.7 a.m. - "summer" breakfast.Chicken, potato, tomato, water.
