This seated HIIT workout is a great option for those who have limited mobility or who are recovering from injury, but still want to reap the benefits of high intensity interval training.
Why Do A Seated HIIT Workout?
The heart is an amazing organ.
It pumps blood throughout the circulatory system carrying necessary oxygen and nutrients to the body.
Since this organ is a muscle, it can be maintained and even strengthened with regular cardio exercise.
Heart disease is a leading cause of death and even more so as we age, so getting the heart to pump a little harder and faster through regular physical activity will strengthen this organ and help improve overall health.
Of course there are different theories of the best way to do this, but my theory is get off that couch and get moving!
If you can find an activity that you enjoy doing that keeps you moving, you are more likely to make it a regular practice… and consistency is key!
This week’s seated HITT workout, also known as high intensity interval training, is just one of many options for getting active.
It’s great for those with limited time as it burns calories fast, increases oxygen intake, maintains healthy blood sugar levels, and best of all helps keep your heart rate and blood pressure in check.
Take charge of your health and do a cardio activity that makes you feel like you’re working hard enough to feel the need to breathe but not to the point of exhaustion.
And try to do your cardio 5 times a week, HIIT not more than twice a week.
Be healthy and HERE’S TO FEELING GOOD!
