High-Intensity Interval Training or HIIT is very effective even if it is executed in a very short period of time. This is really good and very convenient for people who are on the go and spent most of their time at their work desk – because they can perform it within just five minutes during break time. With that short minutes of HIIT, they will hit a total body blood circulation and feels very energetic apart from what HIIT contribute to our total well being.
As fitness specialist Dan Trink describes in his new novel, High Intensity 300, after extreme exercise cardiorespiratory training — either opposition, or both oxygen to help restore it to its balanced. So, as your body continues to fix and reset itself, you will continue using energy (i.e. burning off calories). And, this procedure can continue for hours following your work out (and that is just one part of the advantages of these short-but-demanding work outs.)

But as Trink describes in his novel, not every work out has a large afterburn; maximal effort, which creates bigger oxygen lack is required by high-intensity training /energy cost, and for that reason a greater EPOC effect. Using a metabolic cart, energy cost was measured by her prior to, during, and for half an hour following the work out.
You can not discredit the advantages of long, endurance-based work outs, especially if you are training for a sport or race. But if you are short on time, aim for EPOC.
Extensive science and research validate that total body workouts, with intervals of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) that include both resistance and cardio, are highly effective. HIIT involves performing an all-out, exhaustive physical effort for a short time followed by a short, sometimes active, recovery.
The main emphasis for someone new to HIIT should be a routine that goes hard for 60 seconds and then breaks for 1-2 minutes, depending on the exercise involved. As you get accustomed to HIIT, you can lower the work to rest ratio from 3:1 to 2:1 and eventually even 1:1. During the high intensity interval, your goal should be to have your heart pumping at 85 percent of its maximum rate, or in simple terms on a scale of 1-10 of ease of breathing, you want to be at 8-9.

When it comes to high-intensity interval training (HIIT), the pros definitely outweigh the cons. While it may feel unpleasant to push your body to go faster and harder for that short time period, the rewards are worth it: HIIT helps you blast more belly fat, save time, and burn way more calories (even after your workout is long over) than a lower-intensity workout alone. A recent study published in the American College of Sports Medicine’sHealth and Fitness Journalfound that a few minutes of training at almost your max can accomplish all of this in way less time than a traditional workout.

Explosive jump-style movements, also known as plyometrics, are perfect for high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts. This cardio HIIT routine incorporates plyo moves to fire up your fast-twitch muscle fibers, boosting calorie burn and improving power, stamina, agility, and speed. Plus research shows jump training is great for building bone density. Be sure to give each 30-second set your maximum effort for best results.
