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?
At Home Tabata Workout Do eight 20/10-second Tabata cycles (four minutes total). Remember that the key is to go as fast as your body with allow for 20 seconds and rest 10 seconds (do not just stand still, march it out or step touch) Mountain Climbers
This session I've stepped out of my comfort zone and tackled a 5:30am Boot Camp Class. I say that not because it's Boot Camp. I feel every trainer should be able to handle that! I say this because it's early in the morning. I'm not a morning person.......at all. Personal Trainers and Group Exercise Instructors are happy, motivating, understanding, great listeners...the list could go on. Bottom line is no matter what time of day we are ON.
So! HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is all the rage. I would call it outrageous. I just returned from the 2014 IDEA World Fitness Convention, full of motivation and ready to continue helping my clients towards better health and fitness. And one thing is for sure: HIIT will not have any place in my programming. I took two classes; one with a ViPR, the other one with a new machine called CoreStix. Ultimately, the type of device is irrelevant, but the style of training is.

There’s been a lot of talk about tabata training and how adding it to your regular training can enhance fat loss and sports performance. This is very true, but I think there are far too many of us who are unclear as to what Tabata training really is. Buckle up, here we go…..
