5 Top Fitness Benefits of High-Intensity Interval Training


2. Effective Fat Burner

Fitness programs mostly revolve around one thing – burning fat. Gaining muscle and losing weight are great results of burning unnecessary fat in the body. Sure, you can buy some slimming pills or some fat-burning drink but these supplements may not be good for you in the long run. As far as torching body fat is concerned, no diet pill can match HIIT.

Studies have even shown how four to six 30-second sprints with 4-minute rest periods in between can provide a better aerobic workout than 60 minutes of inclined treadmill walking – that means better overall results with 27 minutes of HIIT than 60-minute cardio sessions.

3. Improves Overall Health

Your heart will love you if you do HIIT.  Because HIIT sessions always involve maximum effort, even if just for short periods, your fitness level will likely improve much faster than with traditional moderate and continuous exercise. This is due to how the body responds to repeatedly dishing out max effort in a continuous cycle.
