23 Sep HIIT it at FLEXcity Fitness
It seems that “HIIT” is all over the place these days. This super effective, high intensity method of working out has been one of the top fitness trends since 2014, according to the American College of Sports Medicine.
So what exactly is HIIT? HIIT- or high intensity interval training, consists of short all-out bursts of exercise, followed by a period of active recovery. This style of workout increases your heart rate and keeps it there, thus burning more calories and torching more fat.
That’s why at FLEX we love intense cardio intervals, followed by a time of active recovery at a comfortable speed. Or, a quick burst of burpees followed by a static plank hold. While you are still working during the recovery period, it isn’t as intense as your 100% effort pushes.
