🏃♂️💦IM SO CONFUSED ABOUT HIIT VS CARDIO!!💦🏃♂️ by @thecorporatefitnessguy⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ HIIT is in fashion!! Cardio not so much, does this mean if I haven't been doing HIIT I've been doing it all wrong? Not quite...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The term HIIT (high intensity interval training) arrived on the scene a number of years ago with tales of magical powers that involved 'melting fat' for hours after exercise. HIIT is essentially short bursts (10-20 secs) of all out effort followed by a rest (40-60 secs) before repeating (normally 10 times).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The truth is that you work so hard during HIIT that you can burn up to 13% more calories POST workout but if you've burnt 300 calories in a workout that is only 30 more later in the day! The truth is HIIT is great if you like a high intense workout in a shorter period of time. For some people this has been a GAME CHANGER when it comes to doing cardio as long arduous sessions just wouldn't work for them. In truth you're likely to burn LESS calories in a short HIIT session than if you went for a 45 minute run. However if you're unlikely to go for a 45 minute then its amazing if you can do a 20 minute HIIT session burning 300 calories.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's really all about finding what works for you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What do you prefer, HIIT or Cardio? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cardio#hiit#sweatsesh#hiittraining#quickworkout#toneup#fitnesstips#myfitnessjourney#ukfitfam#getlean#weightlossplan#onlinecoaching#onlinepersonaltraining#sixpackabs#fitguy#fitnessguru#healthyweightloss#thecorporatefitnessguy#fitlondoners#fitlife
Be The Rock! Don’t be a rock 😂 - I often see posts and people breaking down these aspects when it comes to getting in shape. They say things like “It’s 40% training, 40% nutrition, and 20% cardio” or “Its 70% nutrition and diet, and 30% training.” - Without the training the nutrition is null! If your diet and nutrition is shit then you won’t be getting the most out of your training! The Rock is a true example of this. Not many people on this earth work harder than this man and it shows. He gives it 100% day in and day out! - When looking to lose fat you need to have a plan and execute 100% in all aspects. This will allow you to actually lose the weight in the desired time. You won’t come up short and will be extremely happy once all is said and done! - If you’re trying to lose fat atm, stay focused and stick with it! If you don't have a plan I highly recommend you create one. If you don’t know where to start a coach can be very beneficial. After the plan is in place all you have to do is execute and tick off all the boxes each day. Your future self will thank you!

Any part. You can only do two things to "look better": losing fat & building muscle. That's how you get "toned".⠀ ➖⠀⠀ Now most people who are not completely skinny will end up looking "toned" just by losing fat. Maybe not with as much muscle as they'd like, but it's the starting point any way. If you want to tone up for summer, you have to get rid of your body fat while preserving your muscle mass.⠀ ➖⠀⠀ I'm not going to dive into what you should NOT do here. I imagine it's clear enough from what's on the infrographic.⠀ ➖⠀ However, I'm going to give you more details on what you SHOULD do...so here we go:⠀ ➖⠀⠀ 1⃣ Eat in a slight caloric deficit: if you've been reading any of my posts, by now you know that you have to eat less calories than your body burns (but not too many less) to burn fat without frying muscle. A good starting point for most people is [12x your bw in lbs] calories per day.⠀ ➖⠀⠀ 2⃣ Keep your diet flexible: staying in a caloric deficit over the long run requires a flexible way of eating - 80% "clean" 20% junk. Be too restrictive and you're dead in the water because you're going to blow it up anyway.⠀ ➖⠀⠀ 3⃣ Eat sufficient protein: 0.8-1 gram per lb of bw is a good rule of thumb. Get it from all sources (animals, eggs, dairy, plants...). Don't forget your carbs and fats!⠀ ➖⠀⠀ 4⃣ Lift weights 3x/week: this is a MUST. This will make or break your efforts, as it will mean the difference between losing fat and just getting smaller. If you're just getting smaller (losing both fat & muscle), you're NOT getting toned. ⠀⠀ ➖⠀
