  • HIIT exercise

HIIT exercise sessions generally consist of a warm-up period followed by repetitions of high-intensity exercises separated by medium intensity exercises for active recovery, then a cool-down period. The high-intensity exercise should be done at near maximum intensity. The medium exercise should be about 50% intensity. The number of repetitions and length of each depends on the exercise, but maybe as little as three repetitions with just 20 seconds of intense exercise. The specific exercises performed during the high-intensity portions vary. Most of the research on HIIT has been done using a cycling ergometer, but other exercises like a rowing ergometer, running, stair climbing and uphill walking can also be effective.

  • There is no specific formula

There is no specific formula for HIIT. Depending on one’s level of cardiovascular development, the moderate-level intensity can be as slow as walking. A common formula involves a 2:1 ratio of work to recovery periods, for example, 30–40 seconds of hard sprinting alternated with 15–20 seconds of jogging or walking, repeated to failure.

  • The entire HIIT session

The entire HIIT session may last between four and thirty minutes, meaning that it is considered to be an excellent way to maximize a workout that is limited by time constraints. The use of a clock or timer is recommended to keep accurate times, the number of rounds, and intensity.

  • Different workouts

Different workouts are created to gear to different fitness needs. For instance, some cater to weight loss, others to increase strength and yet others to improve flexibility or build lean muscle. Now a relatively recent workout program is making its mark in the fitness world known as Tabata workout. And while the Tabata workout is not entirely new, it is one that is very high in intensity and lasts a shorter span than most other traditional workouts.

  • Japanese scientist Dr Izumi Tabata

Japanese scientist Dr Izumi Tabata along with a group of researchers who trained a group of athletes at a fairly moderate level of intensity and another that worked at a higher intensity level. The results showed that the group working at moderate intensity levels improved their aerobic system, but the exercise made an insignificant impact on their anaerobic system. The second group working at high-intensity levels, however, showed an increase in both their aerobic and anaerobic systems.

As a result, it proved that high-intensity interval training is more effective in gaining long term fitness results when compared to the steady rate of moderate exercise.

How does the Tabata system work?

  The idea is to use an exercise that is going to tax the individual’s aerobic and anaerobic capacity.

Tabata starts with a 10min warm up to raise the heart and then followed by the main section with a quick 20-sec burst of all the energy you have and a 10-sec rest for 20 min and that’s how they call it -HIIT High-Intensity Interval Training
