What is KERRIE HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING?

What is KERRIE HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING?

 

Well thanks for asking… the short version… I select different exercises each day. You push yourself at your own level to go as fast as you can with great technique. 30 minutes and you’re done, feeling on a high and ready to take on the day! Will improve your cardiovascular fitness, maximise calorie burn to perform like an athlete, strengthen and build lean muscle. 

 

Long version…

 

7 reasons you should make KHIIT one of your regular weekly workouts:

 

Efficient (30 minutes #findyour30)

Burn more fat – all of the intense exertion kicks your body’s repair cycle into hyperdrive. You burn more fat and calories in the 24 hours after KHIIT than what you would after a steady pace run

Healthier heart – pushing into the anaerobic zone (that lovely place where you can’t breathe and you feel like your heart is trying to jump out of your chest! You know the one!!) Extreme training produces extreme results

Lose weight, not muscle – Anyone who has been on a diet knows that it’s hard to not lose muscle mass along with fat. Studies show that both weight training and high intensity interval workouts allow dieters to preserve their hard-earned muscles while ensuring most of the weight lost comes from fat stores. Win/win!

Increase metabolism – In addition to increased fat burning and more muscle preserved, KHIIT stimulates production of your human growth hormone (HGH) by up to 450 percent during the 24 hours after you finish your workout. This is great news since HGH is not only responsible for increased caloric burn but also slows down the aging process, making you younger both inside and out!

Challenging – This is not a workout you can do while chatting with a friend or thinking about what you’ll be cooking for dinner! Because it’s so short, you will be working hard the whole time. The trade-off is this format offers seasoned exercisers a new challenge and new exercisers a quick way to see results. You may be in pain, you may be sucking in oxygen, but you definitely won’t be bored!

Options – if you’re working with an injury or just starting out in exercise, I give you plenty of options to take your workout at a slower pace and without any impact at all.

KERRIE FITNESS – It’s Never Too Late to Start Exercising.

  • Being active four-to-five times a week improves people’s heart flexibility
  • Previous research links stiff, hardened heart muscles to life-threatening attacks
  • Exercising three times a week does little to protect heart health from aging
  • People should incorporate this into their routines like brushing their teeth
  • Heart disease causes around one in four deaths every year in the US 

Five half-an-hour workouts a week is the ‘sweet spot’ for reducing middle-aged cough potatoes’ heart attack risk, new research reveals.

Being active four-to-five times every seven days significantly improves middle-aged people’s heart muscle flexibility, a study found today. Stiff, hardened muscles have previously been linked to heart attacks.

Study author Dr Benjamin Levine from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, said: ‘We found what we believe to be the optimal dose of the right kind of exercise, which is four to five times a week, and the “sweet spot” in time, when the heart risk from a lifetime of sedentary behavior can be improved – which is late-middle age.

‘We’ve also found that the “sweet spot” in life to get off the couch and start exercising is in late-middle age, when the heart still has plasticity.’

The researchers believe inactive, middle-aged people should slot exercise into their routine in the same way they do brushing their teeth or showering.

Heart disease is responsible for around one in four deaths every year in the US. In the UK, more than two-and-a-half million adults are living with the condition, which raises their risk of suffering a fatal heart attack.

How the research was carried out 

The researchers analyzed 53 healthy, sedentary people with an average age of 53.

Of which, 34 completed two years of exercise training, while the remainder participated in yoga and balance training.

The participants exercising more rigorously started with three half-an-hour moderate activity sessions for the first three months, which caused them to break a sweat but still allowed them to hold a conversation.

Two high-intensity, half-hour workouts were added to their regimens after 10 months.

A catheter was guided through all of the participants’ pulmonary arteries to observe their blood flow and measure the pressure in their hearts.

Scans of their hearts’ structures were also taken.

The participants’ rate of oxygen consumption was taken to determine any change in the quality of their fitness.

‘People should be able to do this as part of their personal hygiene’

Results reveal, after two years of exercise, middle-aged people’s oxygen intake during activity increases by 18 percent, while their heart muscle flexibility is boosted by 25 percent.

Dr Levine said: ‘Based on a series of studies performed by our team over the past five years, this “dose” of exercise has become my prescription for life.

‘We found what we believe to be the optimal dose of the right kind of exercise, which is four to five times a week, and the “sweet spot” in time, when the heart risk from a lifetime of sedentary behavior can be improved – which is late-middle age.’

The researchers found exercising just two-to-three times a week does not significantly protect heart health from aging.

Dr Levine added: ‘But committed exercise four to five times a week was almost as effective at preventing sedentary heart ageing as the more extreme exercise of elite athletes.

‘We’ve also found that the “sweet spot” in life to get off the couch and start exercising is in late-middle age, when the heart still has plasticity.’

‘I think people should be able to do this as part of their personal hygiene – just like brushing your teeth and taking a shower.’

The findings were published in the journal Circulation.
