Fit Tip Friday: HIIT Training

Looking to get back into your work out routine after summer vacations are over? Want to burn more fat, in less time? Try HIIT!

People have been raving about HIIT for a while now but what actually is it? HIIT, or high intensity interval training is a training routine focused on keeping your heart rate up to burn more fat in less time. This type of training is strength or cardio based where you give it everything you’ve got for a quick exercise bursts! Then you get your rest- which can also active, like an ab exercise, etc.

Krista Williams, NAC personal trainer and team training director, showed us an example of a sequence which could be featured in HIIT training. This was only one of the 4 sequences!

30 seconds per move/30/30, followed by 30 second rest

This sequence is done twice before moving on to the next sequence of exercises.

#20Days20Ways Day 8

NAC Trainer, Krista Williams shows us:

TRX Pull-ups-
They  are a great way to build upper body strength, and work toward unassisted pull-ups. With the TRX (shortened to arm’s reach when sitting) you use your feet for assistance as little as possible, working up to eventually being able to lift your feet off the ground. As an added benefit, you can work your core by tucking your knees into your chest at the top of each rep.
