HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING
The training consists of a warm-up period, 6-10 repetitions of an exercise and a rest period. Each exercise has two parts. The first step is a laborious step, carried out at the maximum intensity that the practitioner can achieve. The second step is the recovery phase, which should be done at moderate intensity. The total duration of the session does not exceed half an hour.
This very demanding workout has been followed by athletes in terms of losing weight, improving endurance and not losing muscle mass. Recent research clearly shows that HIIT is indeed more effective than medium to long term training in both of the above areas. According to a study conducted in 2009, HIIT seems to be particularly recommended for training athletes who reach a plateau during training or athletes who are afraid of losing muscle mass (aerobic training is inevitable). Another study conducted the same year showed the potential of HIIT to prevent type 2 diabetes in young people.
