HIIT training. What is it about?

Nobody said that spectacular effects must be associated with hours of training. The HIIT training system breaks the common stereotype and shows that a great deal of determination and good fitness can reduce the time for training to the necessary minimum and provide amazing results! Is it really that effective?

HIIT training – what is it?

Under the term HIIT training there is a complex High Intensity Interval Training. Its main purpose is to alternate extremely dynamic and exhausting training with low intensity activities or even short rest sessions. Trainers and instructors point out that the exercising person cannot fully regenerate the body after some of the exercises. The duration of a single session should not exceed 30 minutes, and the weekly plan should include 3 training days.


However, it is worth remembering that HIIT training is based on a high intensity. This may turn out to be a real obstacle for people who do not have the appropriate experience. The lack of a proper fitness base (i.e. a trouble-free 30-minute run at a moderate pace) and an insufficient exposure to resistance training may create a fairly large barrier to maintaining effective functioning of the body during exercise. It should not be forgotten that training must not cause even the slightest discomfort to the trainee. Therefore, an individual approach to the created training plan is extremely important.

HIIT training benefits

  • The high intensity of the exercise is conducive to the reduction of body fat, which may be associated with increased secretion of certain hormones during exercise
  • It supports the body's fitness by improving the cardiovascular system and regulating the cholesterol ratio
  • It allows for an effective maintenance of the muscle mass developed so far, even during a radical weight loss period
  • It has a positive effect on muscle endurance, with no loss in strength or speed
  • It strengthens the character, increases self-confidence and enhances motivation to achieve the desired goal
  • Short workouts allow for spectacular results while saving time

Is it worth to use supplements while doing HIIT training?

An intensive effort is associated with a high level of psycho-physical fatigue, which requires theexercising person to take care of their daily diet and, above all, post-workout recovery. People whoregularly train, both amateur and professional, choose creatine supplements. Creatine Xplode byOlimp Sport Nutrition provides the body with a complex of six forms of creatine, which were selected in the right proportion and enriched with taurine. Creatine is one of the elements co-creating the muscle tissue, which participates in the ATP redistribution and phosphocreatine formation. Regular supplementation with creatine may prove valuable for increasing physical performance in case of short-term and intensive exercise.


Even short sessions of HIIT training require the trainee to be properly hydrated, which is bestsupplemented with the necessary minerals and vitamins. Iso Plus Powder is an easily soluble powder intended for the preparation of a tasty and refreshing drink, the composition of which contains Lcarnitine, vitamin C and B vitamins as well as magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium. The advantage of the created formula is a multidimensional support, e.g. by maintaining proper energy metabolism, reducing the feeling of fatigue and exhaustion, and helping to maintain proper muscle function.
