      We all know the great benefits of HIIT workouts, but are you doing your HIIT workouts the right way? Here are 5 HIIT workout tips to keep you moving strong during your next interval workout!




      We all know the amazing benefits of high intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts: improved work capacities, higher post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC = post-exercise fat-burning), and time efficiency (perfect for time-crunched people!).


      But with all the wonderful things high intensity interval training can do, HIIT carries higher injury risk as well. There are some best practices for doing HIIT workouts so you can keep moving strong and improving your fitness with lower risk of injury. Many of these HIIT workout tips are from lectures I attended at IDEA World that were led by exercise physiologists. These tips are research-based and practical!


      If youíre new to adding HIIT to your workouts, youíll probably have sore muscles for a while! Make sure that you give your body proper rest it needs and some BioFreezeģ Professional to help with achy muscles. Here are 5 HIIT workout tips to keep you moving strong:

      1. START HIIT GRADUALLY
      Donít go all out if you have never done HIIT workouts before OR if you havenít done them in a while (like coming back from an injury). Itís tempting to give it 110% during HIIT workouts, but you need to pace yourself in the beginning and give your body a chance to adapt by building up to higher work intensities and work loads.


      Everyone can do interval workouts, they just need to be scaled to fit each person. Start out with MIIT (moderate intensity interval training) rather than full HIIT (high intensity interval training) workouts.


      Make it work for YOUR fitness level and build up from there with consistency and manageable progressions each week. For example, if you are new to HIIT, you can start by doing 15 minute HIIT workouts one time each week at a 30 second work interval and a 1 minute recovery interval.


      As you progress, you can adjust the workload by 1) adding more days per week, 2) adding more time to your workouts, 3) adjusting your work/rest ratios, or 4) increasing the intensity of your work intervals. BUT you should not increase all those variables at once! Pick one to progress and go from there.

      2. DONíT DO MORE THAN 3 HIIT WORKOUTS EACH WEEK
      Are there people who do HIIT workouts more than that? Probably. But our goal is to workout smarter, not necessarily harder.


      To maximize performance and limit injuries, cap your HIIT workouts at no more than three each week. This helps prevent overuse and stress injuries and allows your body time to adequately recover.


      If you are completely exhausted or youíre sick, itís okay to put off the high intensity HIIT workouts for another day and focus on recovering. Incorporate these recovery techniques into your routine and use some BiofreezeģProfessional for muscle soreness. Your body will thank you!

      3. RECOVER ADEQUATELY DURING THE HIIT WORKOUT
      You MUST make adequate time for recovery in HIIT workouts. The whole point of interval workouts is to RAISE and LOWER your heart rate. If you donít allow yourself enough time in the rest phase to let your heart rate drop noticeably, than itís not really an interval workout, itís just a high intensity cardio workout.


      Plan enough time in the recovery phases of the workout to bring your heart rate down significantly. As your fitness level improves, this recovery period wonít take as long, but as a general rule of thumb, the harder you work in the work phase, the longer the recovery phase. True HIIT training includes adequate recovery phases within the workout.


      4. COMBINE HIIT AND REGULAR CARDIO
      Researchers have found that combining HIIT and regular cardio in one session helps to stimulate mitochondrial biogenesis (creation of new mitochondria, the power houses of your muscles), increasing your bodyís production of ATP at peak performance later on = better athletic performance!


      Example: complete 15 minutes of HIIT (after an adequate warm-up) followed by 15 minutes of steady state cardio. Finish with a cool-down.

      5. TRY VIIT
      VIIT stands for variable intensity interval training. Instead of doing the exact same intervals during the whole workout, vary the intensity or length or the work/rest segments of your workout for a change of pace. Fartleks are a great example of a running VIIT workout, intervals vary depending on where you are (sprint to the lamp post, walk to the stop sign, etc.).


      Example: You can begin your VIIT workout with shorter work intervals to ease your body into higher work loads, then peak your work segment intensities toward the middle of your workout, then again taper them off as you begin to near the end of your workout, finishing with a cool down.
