HIIT and a Gymboss Giveaway

High Intensity Interval Training, or HIIT  (alternating periods of short intense exercise with less-intense recovery periods) Workouts help me supplement my running and improve my endurance. HIIT training comes in various forms, two of the most popular methods are the Little Method – 3 minute warm up, 60 seconds of intense exercise (at 95%) followed by 75 seconds of rest, repeated for 8–12 cycles and the Tabata method – 20 seconds of ultra-intense exercise (as hard as you can go) followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated continuously for 4 minutes/8 reps. Runners sometimes use HIIT as part of Interval Training (more on that in a later post)

I do more of a combination/general HIIT training, some would say it is geared towards more beginners to intermediate training, I say it is just as hardcore and effective.  The following are two of my go to routines, don’t mind the corny graphics .

Quality is more important than quantity. If you can only do 3 burpees in 30 seconds do 3, you will get stronger and faster if you stick with it. If you do not have a kettlebell get one because they are awesome and use a dumbbell until you acquire one. If you cannot do push ups or jump squats or whatever it is try or do a modified one.

Timing is everything!and the awesome folks over at GYMBOSS don’t want you to worry about counting in your head so they are giving YOU an opportunity to win your very own Gymboss Interval Timer. Before I had a Gymboss (Disclaimer: Gymboss sent me one at no cost) I use to use my phone timer, count in my head and watch the clock. This was NOT EFFECTIVE at all. I never had consistent 30 or 45 second blocks and would miss a rep or add in an extra. Yes using my phone or counting was better than nothing but since I’ve started using my Gymboss I don’t have to think. I program the Gymboss, hit start and switch when it beeps. My workouts are simplified, accurate and effective. Gymboss Interval Timers can be used for everything from running to HIIT to yoga, crossfit and beyond. In the next few weeks I will be sharing a variety of different training routines if you would like to see something specific let me know in the comments and Good Luck!!

    I would definitely use it for interval and tabata training. I like to make up random intervals and sometimes my iphone doesn't cut it as a timer.
