Being a working mother with a commute and budding 5 year old, it's not easy to fit in a 20 minute workout, let alone go to a gym after work when I have to worry about any late fees I might incur if I'm late picking up my child from his after school program due to an intense workout! That's why when I saw this book, the "20 minute" and "High Intensity" factors in the title really spoke out to me. I like the fact that with the HIIT method a period of 14 days was advertised as a average time in which one would see a difference in their workouts with this method. With the recommended 3 sessions of 20 minutes a week, that's just 6 sessions in total! The recommended dietary plans were also nice and simple, very easy to follow. Sample cardio and Cross Training workouts are given too! It's a simple read that is pretty friendly for a beginner that's trying to get out of a slump, or an expert that once to try out something new to add to their routine. I can't wait to put it fully into action!
“HIIT 2 Fit” is right. This program translates the complicated science behind high intensity interval training into everyday language that anyone can use. I am a former Army infantry NCO with training in HIIT exercise programs. I bought this to help my sister understand HIIT training a little better for her own exercise program. It broke down the basic concepts of fitness and reinforced many of the techniques and ideas that I showed her. It goes well beyond a simple instruction guide. It teaches key aspects that can help out in understanding exercise science as a whole and gives proper methods for conducting exercise routines. The book is not restricted to one type of FIIT routine, instead showing how Tabatas, Cross Training, Fartleks, and other styles fit into the overall workout regimen. It does not pretend that this is the only method of getting in shape. It presents a neutral voice in showing how what results can be achieved through the HIIT method, even going as far as demonstrating how HIIT can be integrated into a primarily weightlifting regimen. It teaches not only HIIT methods, but how to be fit overall, from diet to dealing with overtraining. I recommend this for anyone looking to develop a proper fitness routine and an understanding of how to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
This is short, to the point, and contains everything you need to know for weight loss, endurance. weight lifting and more. This is a nice little guide I'll be turning to again and again. Lots of little nuggets in here such as the proper exercises to perform, eating and training intervals, proper diet and supplements to get the result I want. I would otherwise have to sift through a bunch of other resources to get what is provided here.
I liked the program . It gives the foundation of what everyone should know about our muscles, respiratory systems and heart rate. All information is useful and should be read before exercising. You can find a plan of workouts from beginners to advanced level clients. This book will help you to be healthier and stronger if you read it up to the end.
I’ve been searching for a training program that wouldn’t take up too much of my time, but also yielded fast results. I was also looking for something that wasn’t too technical in nature – a workout that was flexible, while keeping me focused on my goal. As someone who is not quite fond of “hitting the weights” every day, I found a clear winner with HIIT. I like the idea behind HIIT (Hight Intensity Interval Training) and how it’s flexible enough to benefit a newbie like me or a regular fitness fanatic who’s looking to change up his or her routine. Most of all, I absolutely love the fact that this intense workout regimen continues to burn calories even as you sleep! The different types of exercises and the short, intense training intervals keep me interested and engaged on my goal of losing weight and building up my core strength (something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now). Not only did this guide provide a wealth of exercise and nutritional advice, it also went into detail about the other important details about health and weight loss. Details that we tend to neglect when looking at the big picture. While some people might think this is a waste of time, I appreciate that the author took the time to properly educate his readers about the “fine details” of exercise, good health and fitness.
Book is straight forward and does an excellent job covering the foundation of fitness and the benefits of HIIT.
This program was an in depth look at HIIT and its benefits. I have practiced the workout technique myself, but never really understood the science and nutrition behind it. I enjoyed how thorough yet easy to read the book was. The program goes into detail about how your body converts energy and the options to best incorporate HIIT into a person's daily life; yet at no time was the science behind everything overwhelming. This program is applicable to anyone ranging from just starting to work out fanatic and is great for understanding how to incorporate and utilize HIIT safely and effectively.
I never really understood the whole idea of HIIT. This program really explained not only what it is, but the science behind it. What I especially appreciated is how to apply and put into practical use the whole concept of it. The author also included other factors that affect health and fitness – diet, nutrition, and sleep. He included sample exercises and options to use as well. This program goes a long way in eliminating the “can’t get to the gym…” excuse for not doing a work out. I recommend it!
