by Carlene Murray
HIIT style workouts have risen in popularity quickly. At Board30 Naples we know there are plenty of reasons more and more people are turning to HIIT routines. That’s why we have made them an integral part of our program. The positive effects of HIIT training are far-reaching, including the metabolic effects.
High intensity training has a lot of benefits but one of the most significant is its ability to improve insulin sensitivity. This can help boost fat lose and increase your weight loss journey. HIIT can be a helpful exercise for those struggling with diabetes. With consistent practice HIIT can help be a part of your diabetes management.
POST EXERCISE EXPENDITURE
HIIT also increases post exercise energy expenditure. This means that your body continues to use energy even after the workout. Continuing to burn calories and consume oxygen post workout longer than other workouts. This higher and longer caloric burn can help aid in muscle growth, weight loss, and more.
HIIT workouts help release key hormones including two important one: epinephrine and norepinephrine. These hormones increase the metabolic process, as well as drive lipolysis and release fat from the body’s stores. After a HIIT workout these hormones continue to release for up to 20 minutes in both trained and untrained athletes.
HIIT workouts are great for your metabolic rate and overall health. At Board30 Naples we know your workout should help with your overall health and fitness. That’s why we offer HIIT workouts as a part of our Board30 Naples program!
