New studies show that high-intensity interval training (HIIT) may be even better than regular aerobic exercise.
Emerging research indicates that HIIT may be more effective in reducing subcutaneous (beneath the skin) abdominal fat than other forms of exercise.
The Benefits of HIIT…
According to research by Stephen H. Boutcher, High intensity exercise helps lower insulin resistance & results in a number of skeletal muscle adaptations which help enhance skeletal muscle fat oxidation & improve glucose tolerance.
Basically put this form of exercise will increase muscle tone and burn off body fat.
Tests were performed on sprinters as they often have quick bouts of intense exercise with periods of rest in between.
Beyond the health benefits mentioned above HIIT has also proven to be more time-efficient & helps you to get results more quickly & efficiently.
…Particularly when you’re focusing on the abdominal area.
HIIT can easily be modified for anyone at any fitness level & even for those with special conditions such as diabetes or weight problems.
Examples of HIIT exercises includes but is not limited to:
- Aqua Training
- Treadmill walking, jogging or running (sprinting)
An Example Workout…
Try this as a workout next time you’re in the mood to shift some belly fat.
Two minutes steady pace – this will act as a warm up. Slowly increase your speed over the two minutes.
At the two minute period hit the gas and go into a sprint (or something resembling a sprint). Keep this pace up for 30 seconds. Just do your best, that’s all that can ever be asked of you.
At two minutes thirty slow it down to a steady/slow pace. This is active recovery. Actively recover for one minute – then repeat the process.
Complete at least five sprints and work your way up to fifteen. That is a goal.
If you try and complete fifteen on your first attempt you may experience nausea like you just downed a glass of thick salt water – so aim for five and build yourself up.
At the end continue the movement slowly and easily for two to five minutes as a cool down – keep the blood flowing for a period of time after the intensity, then apply some light stretching.
