A group for those who employ Intense Interval training in the quest for fitness. HIIT can be adopted to almost any sport or activity. Build muscle & improve capacity. Open to anyone anywhere in the world who enjoys fitness.
An often neglected aspect of exercise is its hormonal dimension. Research published Nov 2010 In the Journal of Obesity, found HIIT more effective in shredding body fat than other modes of exercise. Why? The reason may be that HIIT is anabolic. It boosts growth hormone and testosterone more than cortisol, which is particularly important for men. By contrast, protracted aerobic exercise is catabolic. The main hormonal effect of running for an hour is to spike levels of cortisol .Excess cortisol can suppress the immune system, Increase belly fat, and is also proven to contribute to muscle wasting. The Feb 2009 issue of the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition reported that male subjects following a 6 week program of HIIT (15 min. per day 3 days per week & supplementing with amino acids) gained an average of 2 pounds of lean muscle without lifting weights. If you want a leaner, more muscular body your best bet is to harness the hormonal magic of HIT.

I must disavow the impression that I have done 18h 27min of exercise in April. That is entirely an artifact of my inability to stop my t6 at the end of a rushed exercise session crammed between a late flight and an early business dinner. I don't think high training volumes are the best basis for measuring exercise. In most cases, you are better off doing, shorter, more intense sessions.
My move of 6/2/13 either validates the effectiveness of HIIT in up-regulating exercise capacity or invalidates the MOVESCOUNT physiological calculations. I did 4 Tabata sets, starting with a bike warm-up & ending with weighted front squat of grueling intensity. If the t6 readings were correct, my max HR was 187 (predicted max for the age of 33) & calculated VO2 max - 72, about 2x what would normalize as excellent for my age. This implies that HIIT can ramp cardiopulmonary capacity in a big way.
cheers to everyone.... HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR.... I´M BACK !!!!
Can HIIT protected endurance athletes from the dangers of protracted aerobic exercise? Possibly.An article in the New England Journal of Medicine, "Heart-Rate Profile During Exercise As a Predictor of Sudden Death." basically implies that it• is healthier to exercise over a wide range of heart rates. The lower the increase in your heart rate during exercise, and the slower the decline in your heart rate post exercise, the higher your risk of sudden death. HIIT sessions may protect the heart.
