I know of no other way to shred fat faster than with HIIT training! The only caveat is the requirement to fuel your body correctly. Which I can easily help with in the book I collaborated on, Quick Paleo Meal Prep, it’s in the Kindle Store now for .99 for a limited time (I think until the end of this week, May 2). We go over the struggle of not having food ready for the week and “falling off the wagon” time and again, also we give examples of ways to correct and properly prepare your eating week ahead of time, basically guaranteeing your success! But anyway, back to the HIIT!
WHAT IS IT?
A lot of people throw around the term HIIT training and have made plenty of money off of the people who bought into it strictly for the commercial aspect of shredding fat fast. But not many look deep enough to understand what’s going on to make the change happen the way that it does. HIIT training is performing high intensity exercise for short durations, usually using explosive body weight movements (sprints, jumps, plyo-movements, etc.). This is repeated anywhere from two to four times, or for a set amount of time usually between 4-10 minutes. What this does is shock the body and heart into going into overdrive to perform at max capacity for however long you’re going for.
I would say for beginners, no more than twice per week. This will be enough to see results right away, and keep your body intact on the journey. As you get more accustomed to the intensity, play with the time domains. Then if you’re energized the rest of the week through, then add some extra days ONE AT A TIME. The goal is fitness for life nog got the summer, so keep it under control tiger.
Do at least one session of HIIT cardio this week. Something simple and under 8 mins. if this is your first time.
