HIIT – High Intensity Interval Training
High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a workout strategy involving short bursts of intense exercise alternated with brief periods of rest. This approach improves cardiovascular fitness, burns calories, and enhances conditioning in less time than traditional workouts. HIIT sessions typically last 15-30 minutes, with intense intervals of 20-60 seconds followed by 10-30 seconds of rest. This method pushes the body to work at its maximum, boosting endurance, metabolism, and post-workout calorie burn. HIIT is adaptable to various fitness levels and is valued for its efficiency in achieving results.
IGYG – I Go, You Go!
IGYG (I Go, You Go) is a partner exercise method where two people work together. One person does an exercise while the other completes a different one. The first person keeps exercising until their partner finishes. This approach enhances motivation and teamwork, creating an engaging and effective workout dynamic.
EMOM – Every Minute On The Minute
EMOM stands for “Every Minute on the Minute,” which is a time-based workout format. In EMOM workouts, participants perform a specific exercise or set of exercises at the beginning of every minute. The goal is to complete the prescribed number of repetitions within that minute, using any remaining time for rest. As each new minute starts, the exercises are repeated. EMOM workouts challenge individuals to maintain a consistent pace to complete the required work within each minute, combining intensity with built-in rest periods.
Circuit training is a versatile and efficient exercise methodology that involves completing a series of different exercises in sequence, known as a “circuit.” Each exercise targets a specific muscle group or fitness goal. Participants move from one exercise to the next with minimal rest in between. Once all exercises in the circuit are completed, a short rest period or transition time is allowed before starting the circuit again. Circuit training can be customized to include a variety of exercises, such as cardio, strength training, bodyweight movements, and more. This approach combines cardiovascular benefits with muscular strength and endurance training.
Endurance training boosts the body’s ability to handle extended physical activity by improving cardiovascular fitness and stamina. Activities like running, cycling, and swimming are performed at a moderate intensity for prolonged periods, enhancing heart and lung efficiency. This training enhances overall endurance, energy levels, and cardiovascular health.
