HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is a training technique that alternates between short bursts of high intense and recovery intervals. The high intensity intervals are performed at a relative high exertion level and can last anywhere between 10 seconds to several minutes.
Benefits include improvement in heart health and blood pressure, decreased insulin resistance that can help diabetes prevention and management, higher caloric expenditure during the exercise compared to steady-state cardio and higher exercise after-burn also referred to as Excess Postexercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC).
There are different ways to approach a HIIT session. For example, you can incorporate high intense intervals into a traditional cardio workout such as running or cycling. The other way is to use different exercises and combine them to a circuit. The later method is a great way to add variety and target different body parts in one training session.
Two to three (MAX) days a week is a solid amount of HIIT, as long as you give 24 hours of rest and recovery between sessions. So, it's recommended that you have 2-3 non-consecutive HIIT sessions in combination with resistance (strength) training sessions.
