Categories: Exercise

Its only 5 weeks until Christmas, for many of you that can mean your competitive games are well under way and you are looking forward to seeing the mid season stats, but it can also mean that the weather is affecting your training and games and you are lacking consistency in your fitness.

This blog is going to focus on how you can add in quick additional training into your routine to if you find training and games being cancelled.

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is where you take part in exercise giving your maximum effort over a very short amount of time with short amounts of recovery. The advantage to this style of training is it can be performed with different pieces of equipment or none at all and adapted to all levels of fitness. This after effect on your body is more beneficial for toning and weight loss because your body is working harder once you have finished exercising to restore it to its pre exercise state and is continuing to burn calories. As you are working to such a high intensity you don’t have to work for as long to feel the benefits, so it is a great way to train if you don’t have much time.

Here is an example of a HIIT session that you can do.

Complete each exercise for 30 seconds, rest for 15 seconds and repeat the circuit 3 times.

  1. Squats
  2. Press Ups
  3. Lunges
  4. Mountain Climbers
  5. Russian Twist
