THE ENERGY SYSTEMS

ATP-CP: fast useable energy, stored as ATP in the muscles 1-3 seconds

Glycogen-Lactic Acid System: Fairly fast energy that causes a buildup of painful metabolites. Several minutes.

Aerobic Energy: the Slowest system that burns fat using oxygen.

CONCURRENT TRAINING

Kettlebells and battle ropes are ideal for HIIT training thanks to their ability to provide ‘concurrent training’ or ‘resistance cardio’. You can train your cardio fitness but while against resistance.

TABATA

Tabata means: 20 seconds high intensity

10 seconds rest

8 rounds

Only for the experienced!

THE BASIC

HITT involves switching from high intensity to low intensity. This means you are going from ATP-CP and Glycogen LA to aerobic.

You do this by training at 90-100% MHR (Max Heart Rate) for 30 seconds to 2 minutes and switching back to 70% for 1-3 minutes.

This burns more calories in less time and causes the ‘afterburn effect’. It is great for fitness and VO2 max.

WHATS IS METABOLIC CONDITIONING?

Metabolic Conditioning means that you are using HITT as part of a resistance circuit. This is a great way to build fitness while adding muscle and losing fat. Design your circuits smartly though and think about sequencing
