Ignite Your Metabolism

💥 HIIT yourself into shape! 💥

Hands up if you want a healthier weight or want to be in better shape but you can’t bring yourself to do hours of exercising 🙆. We have news worth sharing, science proves you only need 10 mins a day to ignite your metabolism.

Studies now show you can torch fat in less time! Actually maintain fat loss after exercise! With this win-win way of exercising, you can have your cake and eat it too! Or maybe skip the cake for better results.

A study by Gillen et al found a 10-minute spin cycle workout with 3 moments of 20-second sprints achieved the same results as a 50-minute moderate workout!

It’s called HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING (#HIIT), you do a number of short bursts of intense exercise 🏃 ️with low intensity recovery breaks 🚶️ in between.

 Why do 60 mins of mind-numbing treadmill when you can just do 20 mins of HIIT instead? HIIT is a way of training rather than a particular exercise. For example, you can jog for 20 mins but fit in moments of sprinting. 🚴 Or do 21 mins on a spin cycle repeating 1 min fast and 2 mins slow – this is great for most ages as you can build up the intensity intervals to suit your ability. You can find loads of HIIT workouts on YouTube too.

How is this possible? 💪 The high intensity interval tires some muscles, which means your body engages even more muscle fibres to power through the low intensity exercise. Training this way makes you stronger, faster, fitter and supports your #metabolism. HIIT consumes more calories during exercise and carries on burning cals even after your workout 🔥.

Want to reduce your waist size? Studies prove HIIT works on the fat under the skin and around the belly. Regular HIIT helps with insulin resistance and increases your muscle’s capacity to use up #fat and #sugars.

A study in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise found that ladies who did a HIIT workout burned more calories the day after their workout than those who went slow and steady. And even better, they dropped 4% of their body fat in the following weeks. The group who did low-intensity, steady workouts didn’t lose any.

When starting with HIIT, gradually build up intensity to avoid injury. Start with intervals in 1:1 or 1:2 ratios. That means upping your speed for 30 to 60 seconds, then dropping it for the same amount of time or double that. If you have medical issues, consult your medical professional or personal trainer and train to your ability.
