While the “official” recommendation is currently around 150 minutes a week for a healthy adult, the real answer to that really depends on your personal goals.
If your goal is…
• To burn fat: try 2-4 HIIT sessions a week.
• To burn fat and build muscle: blend HIIT sessions with strength and resistance training.
• Maintain or add muscle (and not burn fat): Strength and resistance training combined with HIIT and or slow burn cardio. I.e. Walking etc.
At HARDT FIT we recommend:
FIVE TIMES A WEEK FOR OPTIMAL FITNESS LEVELS.
FOUR TIMES A WEEK FOR TRANSFORMATION.
TWICE A WEEK FOR IMPROVEMENT.
ONCE A WEEK FOR MAINTENANCE.
WHY DOES HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) WORK:
HIIT workouts switch between short bursts of intense activity and slower, “recovery” periods of less intense activity.
HIIT and the ROWER on the ROWFORMER WILL:
•…burn fat faster!
•…sculpt lean muscle!
•…cause less stress on your joints!
•…trigger an ‘after burn’ effect, helping you destroy fat long after you’ve finished working out!
•…make you more fit and athletic!
(A 2006 study shows that after 8 weeks of HIIT workouts, participants could bicycle twice as long as they could before the study!)
•..limit muscle loss – with maximum FAT LOSS!
Why Is Cardio So Important?
The benefits of cardio are legendary. To name just a FEW, cardio:
•promotes fat loss,
•strengthens both your lungs and heart,
•decreases the risk of chronic ailments like diabetes and heart disease,
•improves your body’s metabolism,
•increases bone density,
•elevates your mood, and
•gives you that special glow that comes from taking care of yourself–inside and out!
No doubt about it, cardio is an important and indispensable way to look, feel and live your best.
But cardio doesn’t work alone! Try combining with strength exercises and you have the most effective full body fitness plan for all fitness levels. The ROWFORMER is changing the way you feel-look and breath. LIVE HARDT FIT!
