How HIIT Training Will Unlock Your Summer Body In Half The Time Of Regular Workouts

Every single person who walks through our doors at Virtuo is busy.
They simply don’t have enough time to do all the things they need to get done.

That’s why when clients come to us looking to lose weight but not end up skinny fat we have to deploy our most effective tool for the job…

HIIT training.
HIIT stand for high-intensity interval training and has become popular in the past two decades for its unique ability to craft lean, athletic-looking bodies on both men and women.

We’ll get to the science of HIIT below but here’s the best way to think about it…

Traditional training for weight loss was broken into two phases; strength training and cardio.

You need the cardio to encourage weight loss and you have to hit the weights to make sure you don’t end ups skinny fat, but all that working out means hours in the gym…..

Which is a time our high-performing clients don’t have.
Now imagine if there was a training style that combined the toning effect of weight training with the fat loss effects of cardio….

That’s HIIT!
What might take an hour can be condensed into 20-30 minutes with a well-structured HIIT workout that means faster, better results while saving precious time.

It’s one of the key tools that we use with our clients at Virtuo to get them dramatic results much faster than traditional training styles.

The Science of HIIT

So what exactly is HIIT? Essentially, it’s a form of cardio exercise that involves short bursts of intense activity followed by periods of rest or lower-intensity exercise.

For example, a classic HIIT workout might involve 30 seconds of all-out effort (like sprinting or jumping jacks) followed by 30 seconds of rest or light exercise (like walking or jogging in place). This pattern is repeated for a set amount of time, usually around 20-30 minutes.

The reason HIIT is so effective for fat burning is because it stimulates what’s known as the afterburn effect, or excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC).

Essentially, when you do a high-intensity workout like HIIT, your body continues to burn calories at an elevated rate even after you’ve finished exercising. This means you can continue to burn fat for hours after your workout is over.

Benefits of HIIT

In addition to fat burning, there are plenty of other benefits to HIIT training. Here are just a few:

  1. Time-efficient: One of the biggest benefits of HIIT is that it can be done in a relatively short amount of time. Because the intervals of high-intensity exercise are so intense, you can get a great workout in just 20-30 minutes.
  2. Builds lean muscle: HIIT workouts typically involve resistance training exercises like squats, lunges, and push-ups, which can help to build lean muscle mass. This can help to increase your metabolism and burn more calories at rest.
  3. Improves cardiovascular health: HIIT has been shown to improve cardiovascular health and reduce the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes.
  4. Versatile: HIIT can be done using a variety of exercises and equipment, so it’s easy to mix things up and keep your workouts interesting.

How to Get Started

Ready to give HIIT training a try? Here are some tips for getting started:

  1. Choose your exercises: Decide which exercises you want to include in your HIIT routine. You can use bodyweight exercises like squats and push-ups, or you can incorporate equipment like dumbbells, resistance bands, or a jump rope.
  2. Set your intervals: Decide how long you want your high-intensity intervals to be, as well as how long your rest periods will be. A common ratio is 30 seconds of work followed by 30 seconds of rest, but you can adjust this to fit your fitness level.
  3. Warm up properly: Before you start your HIIT workout, make sure to warm up properly. This can include some light cardio, dynamic stretching, and mobility exercises to prepare your body for the intense workout ahead.
  4. Start slow: If you’re new to HIIT training, start with just a few intervals and gradually increase your intensity and volume over time. Remember, it’s better to start slow and build up gradually than to risk injury by doing too much too soon.

Or even better…
