Advantages of High Intensity Training

There isn’t any valid reason that a low intensity exercise regimen should be maintained by a healthy man unless they just are not actually interested in finding real results. A low intensity work out, defined as exercises during which your heart rate is around 60% of its maximum rate, are not fairly efficient for anything other than quite slow and gradual weight loss. They won’t help you boost your metabolism, they will not assist significantly in building muscle mass, and they don’t do much for strength and endurance.

Private protection just means that a person is really unlikely to injure themselves during a low intensity work out so a trainer who is especially paranoid about litigations may recommend the safer route. Most trainers who would do this are completely unsure of their abilities, planning to be absent for his or her customers work out interval, or merely unfit to be a trainer.

The 220-age formula is merely an approximation and, depending on your individual physiology, you may end up exceeding that number. That is nothing to worry about since it is nearly impossible to damage a healthy heart by exercise.

Low intensity exercises can also be great for the elderly, anyone recovering from an illness or injury, someone who is significantly overweight and out of shape, or someone who’s just starting to work out.

Regrettably, a good number of healthy people who could be receiving important benefits from a high intensity schedule, like the T25 calendar, are stuck doing inferior low strength exercises because it has been advocated by a personal trainer. Generally, a trainer would urge the less effective low strength exercises for 1 of 2 motives: private protection or confusion.

Don’t let the term “maximum heart rate” fool or frighten you.

The confusion course is more difficult to explain and more common. Both intensity levels burn off calories and, of those calories, a percent of them are fat calories. Technically speaking, a low strength workout burns a higher percentage (50%) of fat calories when compared to a high intensity workout (40%). Due to this, some trainers will urge the workout wherein 50% of the calories that are burnt are fat.

Regrettably, this does not really result in the confusion the client burning fat and, therefore.

A high intensity workout burns a higher amount of calories overall, than the usual low intensity work out. Broadly speaking, a smaller percentage of a larger amount is often times more than a higher percentage of a smaller amount.

Let us imagine that you burn 100 calories. Walking is a low strength exercise, so 50% of those calories are fat, meaning that the 20 minutes of work has succeeded in burning off 50 fat calories. Let us also suppose that you burn 160 calories during 10 minutes of a high strength exercise. Of those 160 calories, 40% of the burnt calories are fat which means that 64 calories were burned by your 10 minutes of work.

Despite the percent that is smaller, in our example you burn off 14 fat calories in half the time. Because those 10 minutes are at a higher intensity half the time doesn’t mean half the work. However, half the time continues to be half the time.
