High-Intensity Interval Training Is The Choice When Aiming To Lose Body-Fat

High-Intensity Interval training incorporates high intense periods of work with short recovery segments, which will keep the intensity up and the pulse going. HIIT is a great way to boost up your fat-burning ability.

In several studies it has been shown that the changes that takes place in skeletal muscle in response to HIIT gives a great increase in the capacities for skeletal muscle to oxidize fat.

The more important effect of HIIT lies in its ability to keep you burning fat even after you leave the gym, for up to 72 hours. We believe it’s a vital part in every program aiming to lose more body-fat.
