Personal Training

Every week I have a half an hour HITT session, with a fellow Personal Trainer and friend of mine.
Now I know some people are most likely wondering why a personal trainer needs someone else training them? I find the reason I need someone training me, to keep me motivated and to push me to be the best and reach my breaking point. It also helps keep me going all week with my nutrition and other workouts so I will be on top form for these sessions.

Why HITT training? High-intensity interval training (HIIT), also called high-intensity intermittent exercise (HIIE) or sprint interval training (SIT), is a form of interval training, an exercise strategy alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods. HIIT is a form of cardiovascular exercise. Usual HIIT sessions may vary from 4–30 minutes. These short, intense workouts provide improved athletic capacity and condition, improved glucose metabolism, and improved fat burning. Compared with other regimens.

Here is a small 20 minute HITT Session for you all to try:

Push Ups
Butt Kicks
Triceps Dips
Side Lunges

Do each of these exercises for 45 seconds each, with a 15 second rest before you move onto the next, after you have completed the round have a minutes rest and then repeat for another 2 rounds (3 rounds in total).
