8 Reasons HIIT Workout are So Effective

DC Dec 13, 2017 Cardio

One of the most common misperceptions about exercise is that it is necessary to spend hours busting your butt and sweating buckets to obtain benefits like weight loss, muscle growth and improved overall health and well-being. Instead of working longer, work smarter by using short intervals of extremely high-intensity exercise. This type of exercise is called HIIT or High Intensity Interval Training. Time is one of our most precious resources and we never seem to have enough of it. Some days, it might be easy to skip a workout because you feel that you might not have enough time to make it worthwhile. But you don't need to spend hours in the gym to see results-you simply need to make sure that the time you do spend exercising is as efficient and effective as possible. Here are eight reasons why you can spend less time exercising with

Go ahead - pat yourself on the back.  You KILLED it at your workout today.  With the help of your trainer, you did more reps and harder cardio than you ever thought would be possible, and you feel great.  Well, you actually feel exhausted and famished.  In fact, all you can think about as you walk your wobbly legs out to your car is whether or not your arms are too tired to heft a cheeseburger to your mouth.  You can't wait to eat, and you deserve a treat after your efforts, right?

 

The truth is, whether or not you deserve a cheat-snack doesn't matter as much when you consider the impact that your food choices can have on your post-workout body.  Working out doesn't give you super power-ability to magically be able to eat whatever you want without consequence.  In fact, there are a few definite no-no's for this important time of recovery.  So read on, hungry one, we've got what you need to know, and what NOT to eat.
