Cos'e' HIIT?


High intensity interval training (Allenamento ad alta Intensita' con intervalli), o HIIT training, e' un tipo di allenamento che e' conosciuto e praticato da decenni. Le routines di HIIT includono tempi di esercizi ad alta intensita' seguiti da un tempo di recupero con esercizi di media o bassa intensita'. Dato il fatto che questo allenamento consiste nello spingersi a fare intensi tempi di esercizio, l'allenamento HIIT offre molti vantaggi che il tipico allenamento non possono offrire incluso aerobica, resistenza muscolare, cardio, respiratoria, e brucia grassi in eccesso come nessun altro esercizio.

Whether you are at the gym, on the track, in your house, yard, or on the road a HIIT workout can be completed with great success. Any activity can be used for HIIT training, the idea is to go intense for a set amount of time doing any activity you want followed by a recovery period, and repeat as many serie necessary to meet your goals.

Throw boulders around your yard, run on a treadmill, sprint around the track, up a hill, or through your hood.  Pound on an old tire with a sledgehammer, throw the old tire as far as you can, as high as you can, against the wall as hard as you can, as many times as you can in 30 secondi then rest 10 secondi. Repeat, Pick up the heaviest thing you can find and walk around with it for 30 secondi then rest and repeat.  Lift that 70 lb punching bag up over your head as many times as possible for 30 secondi, then take 20 secondi off, repeat 10 times.  Push your car down the driveway for 30 secondi, rest 30 secondi, and then repeat 20 times. 

I think you get the point of HIIT training by now!

What are the interval lengths?

This depends on your current conditioning level and your specific workout goals.  Starting with a few repeats of shorter intervals of work and longer intervals of rest and over time as your condition improves you can increase the work interval duration, decrease the recovery interval, and increase the number of serie to meet your goals.


The flexibility of the GYMBOSS timer allows you to set any 2 intervals of your choice from 2 secondi to 99 minuti, you can start your HIIT workout routine with precise work interval and rest interval time periods, and slowly increase or decrease as you see fit.  Using the GYMBOSS interval timer you also set the number of repeats that you desire allowing you to focus on your workout, not the clock.

You decide what your work and rest intervals are, set the number of repeats you want to accomplish, and you will get the best possible HIIT workout in the least amount of time burning more calories and fat than ever before.

Clipped to the waistline of your shorts, armband, back of your hat, or held in your hand, clip to the weight rack, the  loud beep and vibrate alarms are easy to recognize signaling time to start or stop your intervals allowing you to focus on your workout and get results like never before.
