What is skinny fat?

The medical term for “skinny fat” is metabolically obese normal weight. This is used to identify people who look thin and seemingly healthy but due to a lack of exercise or poor diet, are suffering from high blood pressure, low good cholesterol, inflammation and/or high blood sugar.

Other traits of skinny fat people are low muscle mass which is due to a lack of exercise or sometimes a past of crash dieting without consuming enough protein to maintain muscle mass. Besides that, vitamin deficiencies in the system can lead to fatigue or low concentration levels too.

The lifestyle choices that lead to these disorders or symptoms aren’t always exclusive to being overweight. Hence, people with normal BMIs often don’t always consider the risks and overlook their fitness until it is too late.

Kickstarting Your Health

If you need a lifestyle change, it is important to be mindful of your daily habits. What you eat and how often you exercise can make or break your path to wellness. Follow these little steps for an easy and impactful way to restore your fitness.

  • Move it, Move it. It’s not always easy, but even getting your heart rate up for just 30 minutes a day can do wonders to your health.
  • Lift, brah. Pair your new workout routine with strength training to optimise muscle mass.
  • Eat a balanced diet. Less sugar and more good for you nutrients. Eat your protein, good fat, leafy vegetables and carbs.
  • Protein up. Take in more eggs, nuts, seeds, fish, or chicken. Sufficient protein intake protects your muscles and maintains a healthy metabolism.
  • Chill. Stress can cause your blood pressure to spike. Incorporate some meditation or anything that will get your stress levels down.
  • Sleep. 6 to 8 hours is the target.

H2F_Hiring Now

You’ve probably read about it in magazines, seen it on social media and maybe even done a HIIT workout. Beyond just being a trendy term for a workout, High Intensity Interval Training otherwise known as “HIIT” is more than meets the eye. So here’s a snapshot of what HIIT is all about so you can get the most out of your next workout or start incorporating some HIIT elements in your fitness routine.

HIIT, Rest, Repeat

In summary, high intensity interval training focuses on working at a high intensity effort for short time intervals to shoot your heart rate up. Each high intensity interval is followed by brief periods of active recovery before jumping back into a high intensity effort. Working your heart rate up and then allowing it to decrease for shorts periods of time has been shown to be an extremely efficient way to maximise calorie burn.

Besides calorie burn, elite athletes across various sporting disciplines have been incorporating HIIT elements in their training program for quite some time as it is the most efficient training method to increase endurance, strength and overall conditioning. Yes, this includes track & field sprinters, footballers, triathletes and even marathon runners!

If You’re Not Tracking, You’re Slacking

The best way to maximise your time and effort in a HIIT workout is through heart rate zone training. The most accurate way to know whether you have been pushing and resting at the correct intensities and find out how much calories you have burned in a workout is through the use of a heart rate monitor, which is typically worn via a chest strap.  By utilising a heart rate monitor, you will be able to calculate your personalised levels of exertion during hard and easy efforts; thus making the HIIT workout tailor made to your own fitness level.

Heart rate tracking also allows you to maximise excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), also known as afterburn, which means that you will continue to burn calories for up to 24 hours after the class! This is achieved by maintaining your heart rate at 80% – 90% of your maximum heart rate over a combined period of time in a specific workout.

H2F_J0131_FB_post_square_v6Why HIIT2fit?

The name of the game at HIIT2fit is that each workout will have you alternating between cardio and strength intervals whether on the bike or on the studio floor that will spike your metabolism, boost your energy, maximise your afterburn and increase your fitness.

At HIIT2fit, our fitness philosophy is to create innovative workout routines set against real time heart rate monitoring so that each workout is as impactful as it is enjoyable. Giving you the best workout for your time and money while connecting with the rest of your HIIT Tribe.

 

Common Cardio Mistakes

July 21, 2016
Wonder why you aren’t losing weight or running as fast as you used to? Not all cardio is created equal.
Here’s how to make sure you get the most out of your next cardio session whether you’re out running or crushing your next spin class.

“I just can’t lose any weight.” or “I think I have reached a plateau”

A common line that many people let out in frustration as they chug along on their gym treadmills staring at the timer wishing there is only a minute left to go in their run. Sometimes the problem is not that we are not putting in enough effort but rather our approach towards cardio training isn’t the best way to get the results that we want.

Mix it up

Your body works in amazing ways. The more you do something, the better it becomes at it. This means that if you keep doing the same type of exercises, your improvements will plateau as body learns and reacts to complete your workout in as little effort as possible. Efficiency!

One of the biggest problems of steady state cardio exercises is that the improvements in fat loss and speed are very noticeable… but only in the beginning. As your body adapts to the workout, the calorie burn benefit is limited. This is why weight training is often viewed as “better” than cardio for weight loss. After each weight training session, your body undergoes a healing process to repair the micro-tears from your workout. That healing process will require more energy and is why you will continue to burn calories after you leave the gym.

While a little variety in your workout might not seem like much, a well designed workout which incorporates cardio (sprints mixed with steady efforts) and strength training elements will be the most efficient way to burn fat and build a stronger body.

Go FAST!

One of the most important variables in any form of exercise or sport is – intensity. Most people find a level of intensity that they are comfortable with to begin their workout and usually rarely deviate too far from it for the entire workout. While this approach is great to build endurance, the benefits of fat loss and increasing speed are limited. It is also good to keep in mind that there is only so much endurance you can build. Going long all the time will not necessarily result in huge improvements in endurance but may lead to poor form and eventually injuries as your body finds ways to compensate the cumulative fatigue of the workload. This is why elite marathoners incorporate several speed interval sessions a week since they know they have reached their endurance capacity and instead need to focus on training to run fast.

In your next workout, try playing with the intensity of your workouts by mixing high intensity efforts along with some low intensity or active recovery intervals. A workout program that is designed that way will jumpstart your metabolism as your body needs to replenish it’s energy by converting lactic acid that’s produced during sprinting into glucose and restore your blood hormone levels after an intense workout. The results? Faster fat loss and improvements in the intensity level that your body is capable of exercising at a.k.a. more speed!

Try various forms of cardio

Just as how cardio at different intensities affect our bodies differently, different forms of cardio exercise engage different energy systems in our body. For example, cycling (at preferably high intensities) has been shown to be better for building strength and fat loss while rowing is the most VO2Max demanding workout. This is not to say that running is “bad” but rather that our bodies can benefit from doing other forms of cardio besides just weight training.

Ultimately, our bodies respond to stimulus and we need to constantly challenge ourselves to increase the intensity or try out a new form of workout to continue improving.
