When it comes to this, many women have the mentality of getting in and out. This is one of the reasons why it is time-saving. HIIT training (high-intensity interval training) has exploded in popularity.
But if you have ever completed HIIT training, it can take some time to actually complete a workout. Intensity "for one reason.) Between finding the time and knowing that the next 20 minutes will be hellish, it's easy to see why you could completely bypass HIIT training.
Amazing news: There's a new one Fitness acronym on the block and it's called HIIPA or high intensity random physical activity.
In a recent editorial published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine researchers of the universe in Europe and Australia are talking about the benefits by HIIPA as "the new HIIT training," arguing that every daily activity that gets you out of breath (from catching food to climbing stairs) may have the same benefits to your health HIIT training. Hmmm …
It's about having short bouts of physical activity (PA) and vigorous physical activity (VPA) in your days to increase your heart rate. HIIT is typically characterized by efforts that reach 80 percent or more than the maximum VO2 limit. Usually, you have to stop exercising and take a break because it's too hard. Scientific Lesson: Your VO2 maximum is the maximum amount of oxygen that your body can consume during intense physical activity and is a good predictor of cardiovascular fitness.
And yes, VPA can actually occur in parts of your daily life , In the editorial board, the authors argue that current research on HIIT has consistent health and fitness benefits, regardless of the number of repetitions or the duration of different protocols. So, if you can reach this high intensity threshold while going up the stairs to your apartment, you can do that. Avoid going all the way to the gym, why not?
"What is classified as HIIPA varies from person to person and depends on your level of fitness Activities that may qualify as HIIPA include: climbing stairs, house cleaning, gardening, shoveling snow or mulch Transporting groceries, carrying children, running errands, walking or going to a building, and much more, "says Stephanie Vedder, NASM-certified personal trainer and supervisor at the Northwestern Medicine Crystal Lake Health & Fitness Center. The catch: you have to work hard enough to be breathless. A VO2 Max test, known as a "language test", uses the same principle: If you can not hold a conversation during exercise, you have reached your maximum VO2 or respiratory threshold.
The authors argue that you can assess health benefits of doing so at three to five short HIIPA sessions (a total of only five to ten minutes a day) most days of the week.
"Regular casual activities, where you even breathe and puff for a few seconds, is a big promise for your health." said Emmanuel Stamatakis, Ph.D., professor of physical activity, lifestyle and public health at the Charles Perkins Center of the University of Sydney and the School of Public Health in the news release.

But there is a catch: they claim that HIIPA is a "particularly attractive option for inactive, obese, and other people most in need of lifestyle intervention." While the health benefits of HIIPA are still for physically healthy people, it is not recommended that you exchange your normal training for HIIPA activities. Think about it: The same activities that leave an untrained person out of breath will be very different from those who are known to be a marathon runner, and the same amount of effort. The key is to achieve an intensity relative to your own fitness level.
"It's exciting to know that intense activity outbreaks can increase your overall health, but do not take that as a reason to give up your workout," says Vedder. "In order to train your heart, you need sustained cardiovascular training In order to stay strong and build strength, you should build strength training. " (See also: Do you need cardio to lose weight?)
Conclusion: The editorial team hopes to emphasize the importance of increasing heart rate during your daily activities, even when you are not exercising in the gym. and that you do not have to kill yourself in HIIT training to gain health benefits.
"If you move as often as possible and sit less," public health and clinical practices may highlight simple messages that are analogous to "Huff and Puff regularly," Stamatakis said.
