Being Active Has the Biggest Impact on Your Overall Health

The toughest part of your exercise protocol is going to be getting over the mental obstacle of actually starting an exercise program. Beginning (and following through with) an exercise program is challenging, uncomfortable and taxing on both the mind and the body. At Academy Chiropractic Centre we are here to help you get started.

Physical exercise is important for maintaining physical fitness and contribute to maintaining a healthy weight, regulating your digestive system, building and maintaining healthy bone density, muscle strength, and joint mobility, promoting physiological well-being, reducing surgical risks, and strengthening the immune system. Some studies indicate that exercise may increase life expectancy and the overall quality of life. Even doing a small amount of exercise is healthier than doing nothing.

HIIT is the Most Effective Workout You Can Do at Home.

HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workouts come with a lot of benefits. We want our workouts to be both fun and effective, right? Interval training is very popular, and for good reason! The high-intensity aspect has to do with heart rate, together you're looking at a workout that will aim to raise your heart rate to a pretty high threshold quickly, and then ask your body to recover quickly as well.

Another great thing about HIIT workouts is you don't need any equipment, which is especially important when you're exercising at home. Many of the moves can be easily done using only your body weight.

Keeping Fit With HIIT Works

High-intensity interval training has become increasingly popular as it's a quick and effective way to improve health. This is all the more important as countries around the world emerge from lockdowns due to coronavirus and are looking for a quick and easy way to exercise again.

  • HIIT Can Promote Efficient Calorie Burn: As previously mentioned, there is sufficient research supporting HIIT as one of the more effective workouts for calorie burn, allowing you to burn the maximum amount of calories in a minimal amount of time.
  • Help with Oxygen Consumption: As Bowen previously explained, HIIT workouts are effective in terms of oxygen consumption, helping your body continue to burn calories long after your workout is complete.
  • Help Boost Metabolism: Research also supports claims that HIIT can boost metabolism, increasing your metabolic rate hours after your workout.
  • Help Burn Fat: HIIT is one of the most efficient fat-blasting workout methods. One review of 13 studies involving 424 overweight adults found that HIIT helped reduce body fat and waist circumference. Another study of overweight young adults found that those who completed three 20-minute HIIT workouts per week lost 4.4 pounds in 12 weeks without making any changes to their diets.
  • Help Build Muscle: HIIT workouts can also help build lean muscle mass.
  • Help Promote Longevity: Due to its fat-blasting abilities and tendency to improve cardiorespiratory fitness. HIIT can help prevent and improve a variety of health conditions, including decreasing the risk of diabetes, stroke, and certain cancers, as well as improving blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose levels, and mobility.
  • Help Boost Mental Health: Aerobic fitness increases have beneficial effects on psychological and cognitive outcomes such as decreases in depression and anxiety and increase cognitive processing, attention, and memory.
  • Help with Daily Movement: Like other forms of functional training, HIIT workouts can increase your ability to carry out daily tasks and improve life quality.
  • Help with improved cognitive health in seniors and reduced blood pressure.

As always … stay hydrated and know your limitations.

LIIT Training is Beginner-Friendly

Light Intensity Interval Training

LIIT (low-intensity interval training) is similar to HIIT in the way that it consists of intervals of higher and lower intensity. The difference is that the high-intensity periods aren’t nearly as intense. Intensity during a LIIT routine is never at or above a sprint, and recovery time is longer. Think going from a jog into a walk, rather than a sprint into a jog.

LIIT training is a good alternative for those who are newer to fitness, the older population that might not be ready to jump right into the incredibly vigorous high-intensity training, and those just coming off of an injury.

People who have been on a fitness hiatus and want to ease back into exercising will also benefit from this form of training. Not to mention, LIIT training also acts like a ‘reset button’, thanks to its longer recovery time in between exercises.

Get All the Benefits of Interval Training at a Calmer Pace

All ages can do it. LIIT training is a good alternative for those who are newer to fitness, the older population that might not be ready to jump right into the incredibly vigorous high-intensity training, and those coming off an injury.

Whether you’re 21 or 85, LIIT training can benefit you in the long run. A study that focused on older adults discovered that through low-intensity exercises not only did they get physically stronger, but they boosted their cognitive health as well. So not only is it more sustainable than HIIT exercises, but it also means that the injury risk is lower and is more appropriate for individuals who are less fit.
