HIIT IT!!! | Essential Wellness | Ibiza Blog


    HIIT Or High Intensity Interval Training is the best way to strip fat

    Starting off. Get on a treadmill, cross trainer or stationary bike and at
    a high level walk or slow jog for around 3-4 min to warm up the body.

    Now pump up the speed to the highest point that you can go, pushing
    yourself at full intensity for 60 Seconds, then slowly bring it back to a
    slow jog or fast walk for 90 seconds.


    Running/Cycling/Skipping etc. is performed at such an intense level that
    your body will spend the rest of the day expending energy to recover from
    the ass-kicking you gave it. This is referred to as EPOC (excess
    post-exercise oxygen consumption) which means that you consume a great
    deal more oxygen recovering from the exercise sprint than you would have
    if you’d just done a low boring effortless exercise.
    With HIIT training you will be burning up to nine times more fat while
    sitting on the couch later that night than you would have if you’d spent
    an hour on the treadmill at a moderate pace.

    Obviously, I am talking about intense training. There is no messing about
    when it comes to HIIT. You will need to push yourself out of that comfort
    zone you have gotten used to and really challenge yourself. If you are
    willing to do this, however, I can guarantee that you will spend less than
    half the time you usually do on those machines and get much leaner in the

    So go on, HIIT IT!!!!!
