Whether you aspire to be the next Bradley Wiggins or you just want to achieve a leaner physique, HIIT training could be the answer.
A recent study found that high-intensity interval training (HIIT) using a bike for short bursts can provide the same health and fitness benefits to an individual as if they were to do cycling over a slower and longer period of time.
Give the workout below a go and increase your fitness levels and burn fat.
- Warm up for three minutes at 75% of your 5k pace (10kph should be fine).
- At minute three increase the gradient to 10%.
- Continue running for 30 seconds then straddle the treadmill (jump off the belt).
- Rest for 30 seconds while you increase the speed by 5kph
- Jump back on for another 30-second sprint
- Repeat this process until you can no longer complete the 30-second set.
- Allow three minutes’ recovery and repeat for the desired number of sets (beginners: one, advanced: three).
To optimise your performance make sure that you are taking on the correct nutrition pre workout and post workout.
To reduce your body fat levels in preparation for your race or event, use ActiVeman Thermolean before and after this workout to gain a leaner physique.
ActiVeman Thermolean is a thermogenic fat burner, which is one of six sports supplements within the ActiVeman sports nutrition range.
Thermolean was developed in 2014 with ActiVeman ambassador and two-time Olympic Gold Medallist James Cracknell, who wanted a powerful fat burner that helped him “chop the wood and reduce the timber’”.
With James’s fat burning goals in mind, Thermolean was produced to combine a selection of the best and most researched weight loss ingredients to assist with reducing body fat levels, whilst maintaining lean muscle mass for optimum performance and endurance.
