High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is one of the most popular forms of fitness today. These workouts are designed to exert a maximum amount of effort in a relatively short period of time. This can be as little as seconds to a couple minutes. While conducting my personal training sessions, I use 30 second exercise intervals as a baseline and sets of 8 - 16 based on muscle groups targeted. So, why is HIIT so popular?
If you’ve had a chance to see “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, you were probably struck by Bruce Wayne/Ben Affleck/Batman’s intensive workout scene. And if you haven’t had a chance to see it, I should start out be mentioning that this article has minimal spoilers. You already know that Batman fights Superman, and it shouldn’t ruin anything to let you know that the Dark Knight goes through a heavy-duty workout to prepare for the faceoff. Which makes sense—you’d have to be pretty built to take on the Man of Steel.

With all the hype & earlier start of the holiday season, we can get tangled up in the superficial social aspects of Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah. We all need to take a step back to define what is important about these celebrations. In between the food, drink, excessive gift giving, we lose the feeling of family, togetherness, our continued healthy living-looking after what is truly important. Is 1 more batch of cookies, 1 more drink, extending our budget more important than staying connected w/ our loved ones & continuing to care for our mind, body & soul?
