Why Less is More When Working Out

2014-10-06 | By: Snap Fitness

The conventional way of performing aerobic exercise is for at least 30-45 minutes. This time commitment may not be feasible for many. Fortunately, there is a way to exercise in less time and attain results comparable to traditional endurance exercise: HIIT (high intensity interval training).

 

I’ve read that despite large differences in exercise volume, performing only two minutes of sprints interval exercise led to a similar 24-hour calorie burn compared to 30 minutes of continuous endurance exercise. It is suggested that the significant body fat losses came with sprint interval training. Want to try it? I recommend the 2:1 Interval. It’s two minutes of fast passed walking and one minute of jogging done for 20-30 minutes. For beginners, I’d suggest two minutes of walking and one minute of incline walking for a total of 20 minutes. You can change you tempos and inclines at any level of fitness.
