HIGH-INTENSITY INTERMITTENT TRAINING
Through P2 Personal Training, High-Intensity Intermittent Training or interval exercise (HIIT) has become a popular form of exercise for athletes, ordinary people and patients with degenerative diseases.
Austrian researchers from the University of Graz identified many forms of HIIT that could render different training effects. Some, such as fartlek, involve changes of pace during exercise with no break. Others involve intervals with or without full recovery. Short or no recovery is more metabolically taxing, while full recovery allows increased power output. Exercise prescription involving HIIt should consider the physical load during exercise and the desired outcome.
