High-intensity intensive training or HII is the most intensive training that gives you the most promising and quick results than cardio, weight lifting, jogging, and other types of workout sessions.

Many people complain that they don’t get time for a workout.

Are you one of them?


HIIT involves intense workout for a short period with a long resting period. It normally ranges from 10-30 minute.

Here’s how HIIT gives you maximum benefits in minimal time.

You Can Burn Calories Quickly

HIIT fires up your system and burns calories more than any other training or workout.

ou will be glad to know that just 30 minutes of HIIT, weight lifting, biking and running can burn up to 30% more calories than other exercises.

Helps Regulate Your Blood Sugar

As your body uses up carbs for energy during HIIT, your blood sugar level reduces.

Your blood glucose regulation improves and insulin resistance lowers, which is great for your health.

Boosts Your Metabolism

Another advantage of HIIT compared to other forms of training is that you burn calories even after you are done with your workout.

You will be happy to know that HIIT increases your metabolism and it stays elevated up to 20-24 hours after you exercise.

This happens as your EPOC (Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption) is increased by HIIT.

When you perform HIIT your body uses the stored anaerobic energy. Your body would consume more oxygen, and work harder to get your basal metabolism back.

This keeps your metabolism higher for many hours.

When you perform HIIT for weeks, your body starts using fats instead of sugar. This way you burn up more fats.

You Build and Maintain Better Muscle Mass

When you perform HIIT, your body produces more anabolic hormones, like growth hormone, and insulin.

These hormones regulate carbs and proteins better by using them to build your muscles.

This way you burn more calories. Your muscles will look toned rather than bulky.

Your Cardiovascular Activity Improves

During HIIT your heart pumps oxygen much faster. This increases and improves your cardiovascular activity and oxygen intake.

Your oxygen consumption boosts your overall stamina, and with time you will need less rest after a workout.

Your Blood Circulation Improves

HIIT increases your blood flow and blood dilation. Improved blood circulation has an overall good impact on your brain.

Your brain, heart, and other vital organs receive more oxygen in less time.

Helps Prevent and Manage Type-II Diabetes

Diabetic patients have decreased blood flow and high sugar concentration in their blood.

As HIIT improves blood circulation and regulates blood sugar level, this directly helps individuals with type 2 diabetes.

You Don’t Need Any Equipment

HIIT is quick, convenient and cheap as well. You don’t necessarily need to go to the gym or have fancy equipment for performing HIIT.

There are many exercises HIIT offers that you can do easily without equipment.

Prevents Aging and Enhances Longevity

HIIT regulates and improves protein synthesis in your body.

This helps reduce signs of aging. It prevents muscle failure in the long run too.
