High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is an extraordinarily effective form of training that mixes high- and low-impact activities during periods ranging from seconds to eight minutes. In HIIT Your Limit, Dr. Len Kravitz, who has been inducted into the National Fitness Hall of Fame and been an internationally-renowned exercise scientist for the past thirty-six years, and sold nearly 100,0000 copies of his last fitness book, explains what HIIT is, how it effects your entire body (externally and internally), gives 50 workouts and a guaranteed plan to whip you into shape fast, and presents a wealth of nutritional and other advice to further its impact.
HIIT was recently rated the #1 new fitness trend by the American College of Sports Medicine and is the key to staying fit for celebrities like David Beckham, Britney Spears, Hugh Jackman, and Scarlett Johansson. In addition to fat loss, it’s been proven to have major health benefits on blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol. Through this groundbreaking volume you’ll learn why, and see how to get fit quick, and have a fun and a truly sustainable exercise program, no expensive personal trainer required.
REVIEW by LAWonder10:
There were several impressive aspects to this book.
The author corrects a lot of - in his opinion - fallible ideas that one diet is better than another. He states, "There is no one perfect diet..." because each person's physical make up is different. Each has got to find one which fits him/her the best.
With HIIT (High-Intensity Internal Training), anyone in any stage of life and health can do this.
It is important to become "in tune" with one's own body, so one can know when to increase or decrease the amount of exercise to best aid the individual. There are many hints he offers on how to determine this. (Or know when one has HITT his/her Limit)
This simple exercise program can aid one in avoiding or decreasing many health issues.
He guide one in setting goals, and in putting this program to work. Exercising can be as simple as walking around one's office or in one's home while on the telephone.
Dr. Kravitz has developed a formula which includes: Motivational messages; Timer Setting; Exercise Mode; Warm Up; and Workout Design, with Interval, Duration and Intensity levels.
In this book, he gives several options. Also, included is illustrations of "Future workouts - including the us of weights.
In Section 4, Dr. Kravitz also expands on "100 Ways to Cut Calories" in ach person's every day life.
This is one program, I am convinced I can implement in my life, where other programs have failed.
I offer a Five Stars rating.
*This book was gifted me with no pressure for a positve review. This is my honest review.
