Portland Personal Trainer HIIT Workout | HIIT Training For The Track | Interval Training

So now that you have an idea about what HIIT is here's some HIIT Workouts-The combinations are endless when it comes to HIIT workouts. We could do any combination of intervals, but here are a few examples:HIIT training for on the track:Sprint the straightaways and walk/or jog the curves. Do this for 20 minutes.Sprint 200 meters (half way around the track) and walk/jog the other half. Do this for 20 minutes.Sprint 400 meters (1 lap) and then walk/job the next lap. Do this for 20 minutes.Off the track you will want to do similar intervals, but use time as a measurement instead of distance:Sprint for 15 seconds and walk/jog for 30 seconds. Do this for 20 minutes.Sprint for 30 seconds and walk/jog for 60 seconds. Do this for 20 minutes.Sprint for 60 seconds and walk/jog for 90-120 seconds. Do this for 20 minutes.HIIT training in the gym: Portland Personal Trainer workoutsSquats for reps for 1 minute and then rest for one minute, then repeat for 20 minutes.Deadlifts for reps for 1 minute and then rest for one minute, then repeat for 20 minutes.

Repeat for 20 minutes.Box jumps – jump onto and off of a box as quickly as possible for 1 minute and then rest for 1 minute.

The key is to do a full body exercise for a certain period of time, and follow it up with a short rest interval, and then get right back into it. Yes, you are going to be breathing hard and not fully recovered before you start your next working set, but that’s what makes HIIT so effective. Your goal is to be able to work out at a high intensity for a longer period of time with less and less rest between intervals.To progress with HIIT, you are going to want to vary your interval times. Try lowering the amount of rest time between high intensity intervals, or try jogging instead of walking. Try shaving just 5 seconds off of every rest interval each time you work out. Eventually, you will be sprinting at a higher speed for a longer period of time than when you started.The Art of Personal Training by Kisar Dhillon107 SE Washington Street, Suite 137Portland, Oregon 97214503-953-0241
