At the Beau Collective, H.I.I.T (High Intensity Interval Training) is totally our JAM. We absolutely LOVE the fast paced drills and the constantly changing workouts! Time F L I E S because you’re never doing one drill for too long, its super efficient and it’s just plain FUN!
Having fun is truly the MOST important reason why we HIIT! It’s simple...you are going to stick with something that is fun, gives you loads of endorphins and sends you out to your day- a little bit better- am I right?! We HIIT for these reasons and because there is SEAU much scientific research that has been done to support why it truly is a great way to train!
Here’s the low-down… When you are in a total cardio burst, you are increasing your body’s need for oxygen. Your body then begs for more oxygen during the active recovery portion of you workout. The ‘after burn’ of this type of workout is referred to as Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption, or EPOC. EPOC is the result of intense exercise, which allows your body to burn more fat and calories than regular aerobic exercise, or steady-state workouts. EPOC increases your metabolism so that your body will continue to burn fat and calories for up to 48 hours AFTER you finish.
The moral of the story is that your metabolism is still crushing it during Happy Hour and ...WE’LL TAKE IT!
