Fitness is becoming a revolutionary industry with top notch competition amongst gyms, health clubs and fitness centers. Some of these centers are trying to establish a permanent place in the society by introducing different exercise modules and approaches to health that are both interesting and effective. Who is not bored by unending hours of walking or cycling daily to lose weight without a twist to the tale? People love variety in everything they do. Exercising is a painful chore for most of us already and when there is no enthusiasm to perform it, it becomes more of a punishment. First and foremost, get away from the ‘exercise is a punishment’ mentality and look for innovative ways to deliver high results by sticking to different activities.
Hit it on HIIT
The top-most fitness trends for 2019 have been released and its fulfilling to find HIIT among the top five trends of this year. If you are eager to know the other top ones it’s time that you took a look at them atwww.firsteatright.com. The all-famous acronym has hit the fitness industry by storm and am sure most of you would be familiar with this by now. Standing for high intensity interval training HIIT refers to short bouts of intense activity. There have been indications clearly beforehand that HIIT is not for the weak-hearted or the energy-restricted owing to its vigorous exercise routine. But it’s surprising to realize that activities such as washing the car, climbing stairs or carrying groceries also offer the perfect platform for short bursts of High Intensity Incidental Physical Activity (HIIPA).
Beyond the activity the output or effect it brings unto the person counts more. For instance, something that makes you huff and puff after performing it is of advantage. Your age, sex, weight and physical capability play a major role in classifying something as a high intensity physical activity. Such activities keep you breathless and boost your fitness levels. When we incorporate such exercises in our regular activity regime in between-maybe small bouts of 3-5 HIIPA sessions amounting to 5-10 minutes a day at least thrice a week we are cleansed of the necessity to pay gym membership or take up some game activity. For someone who is highly inactive even exercise such as walking, playing with kids or washing clothes bring about sweat and help you not regret later.
What Do you Get?
We’ve got plenty of research facts backing our view that any time of HIIT irrespective of the duration or the number of repetitions is a gem when it comes to improving overall fitness and cardiovascular health. There is no hard and fast rule of doing HIIPA for an hour daily or so. Doing somewhere between 3 and 5 sessions of HIIPA for only between 5 and 10 minutes a day is reasonably good for the body.
The best thing about HIIPA that makes it stand above the rest of the exercises is that it involves activities and chores that we do daily which makes this achievable and realistic. You don’t need any customized equipment, gym membership, a certain fitness level to achieve great things with HIIPA. So, you can’t come out with lame excuses too to avoid exercising! Its all about how you redesign your lives-such as parking your car further away from the parking lot, using the stairs instead of the elevator or doing some planks while having a good time with your little one. The essence of doing any exercise is to go out of breath, exert yourself and reap greater benefits (studies show that vigorous activities improve cardiovascular health and life expectancy as well).
