Conditioning Program – (HIIT - High Intensity Interval Training)
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a form of exercise in which you alternate between very intense anaerobic periods and slower recovery periods for a shorter, more efficient workout. “The high intensity intervals should be performed at near maximum effort and the recovery intervals should be done at about 50%. For example a beginner would start with 5 sets of 4 x (10 sec high intensity + 30 sec moderate intensity) with 2 minutes of rest between each set, to gradually evolve into 3 sets of 10 x (20 sec of high intensity + 20 sec of moderate intensity) with 1 minute of rest between sets.
