HIIT Lingerie!

HIIT-a quick way to look your best in lingerie.

By Katie

Saddlebags, muffin tops, spare tires, chicken wings-we've all heard them and probably have even pointed out these "flaws" on ourselves. How can we get rid of these problem areas so we can feel confident (link back to confidence post) and look sexy in lingerie (add photo of your lingerie)?

Your first daunting thought may be to spend hours in the gym doing millions of push-ups and squats in hopes to develop sculpted shoulders and toned gams to flaunt in lingerie. WRONG! Spot reducing, or targeting specific areas on your body that you want to lose fat from, has been a common myth in the fitness industry. Although those push-ups and squats are sculpting exercises, if there is a layer of fat on top of the muscle, you will see little (if any) definition. 

So what's a girl to do? High intensity interval training!

HIIT, a form of cardiovascular training, is alternating periods of high-intensity exercise (sprinting, hills, jumping rope) with lower-intensity exercise (jogging/walking, marching) for any desired amount of time. The benefits of HIIT are: improved overall fat loss, increase in Vo2 max (max amount of oxygen you can uptake during exercise), and a greater EPOC (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption), meaning you'll continue to burn fat and calories even after the workout is completed. Another great benefit of HIIT is you can complete a workout in 15-20 minutes and no equipment is required!

In no time, you'll be flaunting not only a confident and sleek body in lingerie, but a toned one too!

Interesting stuff… This is a nice and compact piece of writing. If you want to know a bit more on HIIT and why its so effective a(and hard!) We have written a sort of ‘summary’ on HIIT, a compilation/summary of university papers – re-written into plain English! We would love to hear your comments… http://www.fitness-saver.com/2012/04/23/hiit-high-intensity-interval-training/
