The high intensity training (HIT) technique is a perfect blend of fitness and science. This method is designed for achieving muscle failure, and it should be done in proper sets with repetitions. This training exercise involves a combination of weight and repetitions, which helps in the maximum development of the muscles. The basic principle of HIT technique is that it must be brief and intense. Performing this strength training method will ignite your entire body for producing more muscles. It can also help in the process of fat burning. This exercise, which was introduced about four decades ago by Arthur Jones, is now preferred by lots of bodybuilders, professional athletes and many other people.

Important tips

You need to keep certain things in mind while performing high intensity training.

  • Do no not perform the exercise for more than eight weeks. After performing the exercise for eight weeks with full intensity, you must change your training routine into something that consumes around 70 percent of your energy.
  • Increase the weight and reduce the repetitions with the progress of the exercise. The weights should be regulated properly so that your muscles reach full failure after 5 to 8 repetitions. Muscle failure is a particular point at which you would not be able to perform a single more repetition.
  • Enjoy the benefits of the negative parts of the exercise. This is often ignored by many people. The negative part of weight training refers to the lowering of the load. The weight should be lowered down slowly, and you need to concentrate on the muscles. The negative phase in the HIT technique is highly beneficial.
  • You should not rest for a period longer than 35 seconds. If there are long periods of rest between the sets, then intensity of the workout is reduced. As a result, the muscles do not get exhausted. This is a brief exercise, and so you cannot enjoy the luxury of resting for a long time. Intensity of the training causes concentration of blood into the particular group of muscles on which you are working. It you take rest for a longer time, then the concentration of blood will decrease. Your resting time between sets must be between 30-35 seconds.
  • An important thing that you should keep in mind is that the HIT method should only be performed when you are perfectly fit. If you are not feeling fit, then such an intense training may have opposite results.
  • Supplements for muscle recovery are required when you are performing this high intensity exercise. This due to the reason that this technique puts a large amount of pressure on the muscles.

These are certain essential tips that you should keep in mind if you are planning to perform high intensity training.
