I have always believed in challenging myself and I love the approach to fitness of this HIIT program. I love the fact that you can achieve optimum fitness without having to spend hours at the gym. I was also very happy to read about the research being done lately on the effectiveness of doing high intensity interval training. This fantastic book covers some of the latest research comparing HIIT workouts to other types of cardiovascular training. This text is organized into three parts.
Part one gives an introduction to the HIIT philosophy and why it works so well to achieve high levels of fitness. The second part covers why HIIT is superior to continuous training methods when it comes to exercise enjoyment, weight loss, exercise duration and other factors. The final part explains how to implement HIIT programs. This part goes into the required HIIT intensity, HIIT frequency, HIIT protocols, nutrition and other topics. I was especially fascinated with the wide variety of HIIT programs one can practice and get great results. I also loved doing the “Tabata” routine but I did it for 12 cycles rather than the 8 circles and found it to be fantastic. I also do numerous stretching and yoga asanas to balance my workout routine.
If you are into physical fitness or sports this is a must read book on the HIIT exercise philosophy. I loved it.
Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Samurai Aerobics for Fitness)
1) to get a more in depth look into the scientific understanding of what HIIT does to the body.
this was a little thin. got few single points I did not know but he skipped a little fast through the science. but hey many reviewers wants pictures and exercise options etc. it gives lots of this. hard to satisfy everyone.
2) the get clear overview of whats best. sprint 20 sec. or 30 sec. or 10 min. and how long recovery time is too little and too long. its touched upon but not much. hoped for scientific data on this.
its a quick read. the book delivers and is well written. I recommend it to anyone new to HIIT. happy sprinting.
