Moving From HIIT To LIIT

For the last couple of years, HIIT, or high intensity interval training has been the buzzword in fitness. Coming up on the scene is its gentler cousin LIIT, known as low intensity interval training.

After doing HIIT training, many people sustained stress fractures and injuries. Mostly because they simply were not ready for such intense stress on the joints and muscles. Studies now show that even the low intensity interval training has great effect on strengthening your heart, shedding more body fat, and being easier on your joints and bones.

In LIIT training, the intervals simply come from changing speeds, or changing directions for about 30-40 minutes. At every 4-5 minutes you should change direction or speed!

This way you would burn about 20% more calories then if you’re walking in a straight line!

Go for it and see how it feels!
