HIIT – Circuit Training at Health and Exercise Matters

If you’re restricted for time and want to get the most from your workout you can’t beat high-intensity interval training (HIIT).

What is HIIT?

HIIT training involves putting in your maximum effort for short, intense bursts of exercise followed by short recovery periods to reap the maximum rewards.

The benefits are very impressive – improved endurance, increased fat burning and will boost your metabolism so you’ll burn calories faster and for longer. In fact, research suggests that 15 minutes of HIIT training burns more calories than an hour jogging.

This class based challenge involves a series of fantastic body-weight exercises that can be performed anytime, anywhere. Prepare to be taken out of your comfort zone. Well, it is a challenge!

Circuit training

Circuit training is a combination of six or more exercises performed with short rest periods between them for either a set number of repetitions or a prescribed amount of time.

Circuit training will usually involve 6-12 exercises and is structured in a way that enables you to keep performing the exercises with good technique and very short rest intervals.

Circuit training is very time efficient which makes it a popular method of training. It is an excellent way to improve cardiovascular fitness and muscular strength endurance.

Circuit training will elevate your heart rate and keep it high through the entire circuit due to the short rest periods, large muscles being worked together and a combination of upper, lower and whole body exercises.

An appropriate exercise selection and structure to the circuit will mean that you can move from one exercise to the next without undue fatigue. Circuit training has some of the benefits of cardiovascular training and weight training but will not replicate either one specifically.

Circuit training is a great choice if you get easily bored, are short on time or don’t like to train alone. It can involve as much or little equipment as you like which makes it ideal for group training and those with limited space.
