Hard-core training, such as high-intensity interval workouts, is what you need to step up your game and see more effective results on your body and health. So you might be wondering, what exactly is this high-intensity interval training? High-intensity interval training are workouts that alternate between intense levels of physical activity and fixed periods of lesser activity. For example, for a newbie to high-intensity interval training, a starter workout would be running as fast as you can for one minute and then walking for two minutes. Then, repeat it a couple of times and voila! You have done your first, effective high-intensity interval training workout.

According to Shape magazine, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) provides many proven benefits.

  1. Efficient for diligent workers

An alpha female like you may have many responsibilities to take care of, but you have nothing to worry about! With HIIT you can squeeze in a workout during a lunch break, or anytime in the day for even 15 minutes. “Research shows you can achieve more progress in a mere 15 minutes of interval training (done three times a week) than the girl jogging on the treadmill for an hour,” states Shape magazine.

  1. You can do it anywhere

You can do it at home, you can do it in a dome. You can do it here or there, you can it anywhere! Dr. Seuss would’ve been fond of the HIIT workouts. It’s such a simple concept; put in your maximum effort, but with shorter periods of time and then give yourself a recovery period. This can be done wherever you want, at your convenience.

  1. Say goodbye to that lingering fat

With HIIT workouts you can burn more calories and fat. Also, those super intense kicks and jumps put your body in “hyperdrive” mode. Which means that you would burn more fat in 24 hours after a HIIT workout than you would in a steady pace long run. Well, that must sound like music to your ears!

  1. Healthier heart for a healthier you

For your huge heart, keeping it healthy is crucial. You probably don’t like pushing into that zone where you can barely breathe and feel like your heart is trying to jump out of your chest. Well, you don’t need to feel like that anymore! In this case of HIIT workouts, extreme training provides extreme results.

  1. Lose the weight, and keep the muscle

Trying a diet is critical in that you want to make sure that you don’t lose your muscles while losing weight. Some muscle building is important for healthy and strong living. Muscles help burn a lot of fat, so having more muscles will help to keep you thin! Weight training and HIIT workouts allow dieters to preserve those well-earned muscles while ensuring that all the unwanted weight comes off fast.

  1. Increase metabolism

HIIT workouts stimulate the production of your human growth hormone, or HGH. This is extremely crucial in that HGH is not only responsible for your increased caloric burn, but also slows down the aging process. This makes you younger, both inside and outside!

After learning about all these amazing benefits of high-intensity interval training, the one question that’s left is, how should I do it? Have no fear woman! We’ve got you covered. You will be running, jumping and kicking with your lulus in no time!
