What is High Intensity Interval Training?

High intensity interval training, or HIIT, is a type of programming designed to maximize your calorie burning in a short amount of time. HIIT is comprised of short periods of extremely demanding physical activity that are alternated with active rest or less intense recovery periods. It is not for beginners. Experienced athletes find this difficult, and anyone who participates in it should do so carefully and with proper supervision.

Supplementation can help us perform better during our workouts. A pre-workout powder can give us added endurance and focus. Several studies have found that creatine powder helps enhance physical performance during HIIT. We can take both products for that extra push to help us finish our demanding workouts.

This is very exciting news for those of us who already use creatine for strength training. We take it to help eke out another rep or to lift a little more than we did the previous day. Now we know to take it when we participate in HIIT to experience its fat burning benefits.

This new finding will enable us to take our high intensity interval training to a higher level which in turn will help us get closer to reaching our goals!

Isn’t that what you want too?
