Many a long boring cardio workout in the studio
Incorporating endurance training into your fitness training plan has several good reasons. Firstly, it increases your fitness performance, is doing something good for your heart and circulatory system and it promotes the burning of fat. But if you do not have pleasure to spend 30-45 minutes on the treadmill, cross trainer, or etc., you can use the “HIIT training” that also promotes fat burning. HIIT = High Intensity Interval Training
Instead of 30-60 minutes with a regular cardio unit, you need the “HIIT” training it is max. 20 minutes.
First is 3-5 minutes warm-up. Then the training really begins. You start with a moderate speed, and this is increased to 1 minute for 30 seconds up to 90% of your maximum heart rate. Put simply, ”give gas” . Then it switches back to the moderate speed.After one minute, it increases the speed again for 30 seconds.That makes it until you can count 8 sprints. Then you walk out a few minutes and you’re done your cardio unit, in less than 20 minutes. The best results are achieved when the HIIT training is done after the regular workout (weight training).

HIIT in brief
During a HIIT the body goes into an oxygen debt, and there is a Afterburn effect(afterburn). The upside of this type of training is that the calories are not so much burned in the training phase, but only after a workout, and for the rest of the day. It thus increases the metabolic rate. For the fat-burning the amoount of total calories are burned in the day are important. There are other types of HIIT training, which I would imagine, but in more detail in the coming posts. Have fun with your cardio.
