HIIT AND STRENGTH TRAINING
WHAT IS HIIT TRAINING?
HIIT stands for “High Intensity Interval Training”. In our program you will engage in HIIT trainings (workouts that include tabata cycles, speed intervals, etc.) that will build and shape lean muscle. HIIT training is also anaerobic and aids in strengthening your heart and speeding up your metabolism.
You have the option in our workout plans to select Home, Gym, or Low Intensity. We encourage you to select the option that you are most comfortable with and make sure not to overdo it at the beginning. Remember, the focus is progress over perfection.
WHAT IS STRENGTH TRAINING?
Strength training is a type of physical exercise specializing in the use of resistance (free weights or body weight) to induce muscular contraction which builds the strength, anaerobic endurance, and the size of skeletal muscles. Strength training days will consist of exercises that are performed in reps. (i.e. 10-12) and sets (i.e. 3-4). We provide videos of every exercise in our program so that you can learn how to properly perform each move.
THE IMPORTANCE OF REST AND RECOVERY
If you are eating to fuel your muscle growth and exercising to shape your muscles, then you will need to rest so you can repair your muscles. Taking a couple of days off each week is critical to building lean muscle. Our program builds in rest days to ensure that you are allowing adequate time for you body to heal and recover.
