  2. 2. It once was assumed the longer ormore you exercised the more fityou would become.Science has since provedotherwise. Good News for those ontime constraints.
  3. 3. What is Interval Training?Interval training is repeating alternating high intensity workouts with short recoveries. Simply put, interval training is a workout rotation between 2 or more intensities
  4. 4. Degrees of Intensities There are multiple reasons to use interval training:• If you are just beginning exercise and want to workup your endurance, you may start with a lower intensity training of a walk/jog combination.• If you are training for a marathon but are beginning to feel the “wear and tear” on your body, you may integrate interval training to increase speed and endurance while at the same time saving yourself from overtraining.
  5. 5. Degrees of Intensities• If you are an athlete looking to improve your speed and endurance to excel at your sport, it is common to practice at high intensity levels to cut down on body fat as well as increase oxygen intake.• If your goal is to solely lose weight and live healthier, interval training will do just that.
  6. 6. HIIT• HIIT or High Intensity Interval Training is a cardio routine designed to increase performance. • Takes less time than traditional cardio training. • Creates the muscles ability to burn more fat.
  7. 7. Performance• Seasoned and professional athletes have used interval training since the early 1900s to effectively improve performance.• Studies have shown by including interval training into a consistent workout routine will advance the performance of an already “peaked” athlete.
  8. 8. Performance• Variations in the interval length and interval intensity and the extent of the resting period can be personalized to become sport specific.
  9. 9. HELPS…• A Pole Vaulter vault higher• A Basketball player need fewer rests, rebounder high, and shoot more accurately• An 800 runner extend his kick at the end of a race• A Football player catch an opposing receiver
  10. 10. Time Crunch• A typical interval training session lasts ½ the time as a traditional cardio workout.• During a HIIT session, resting periods are often twice as long as the high intensity portion of the interval.• Because the intensity level is so high, recovery is so important.
  11. 11. Even though less time is spent training, HIIT isshown to burn fat more effectively by increasing metabolic rate for 24 hours after the workout.
  12. 12. Benefits• advance speed and endurance• avoid injury of over-training• maximize oxygen consumption• improve cardiovascular health• reduce body fat percentage
  13. 13. Secondary Benefits • Builds Confidence!• A confident individual does not limit themselves to success. • Additional success will follow.
  14. 14. Not for Everyone • HIIT is not for everyone• Yes, it is effective, BUT, you have to mentally prepare yourself.
  15. 15. DETERMINATION• Interval training is not for the weak. • It is for the determined. It is for the strong.• It is for those who do not quit until they have achieved what they started out for.
