On the web since 2012, now I’m living in NY.
After 3 years spent in Barcelona, this desire to return to home, to draw energy from the dynamism of Paris grabbed me.
Passionate about high intensity exercise, health and writing, I also hold a master’s degree in marketing and communication.
My primary motivation is to be able to share different and original content to surprise each time a little more.
Often traveling around the world, I like to embark my audience in my discoveries and make them want to move mountains. I chose to blog about high intensity exercise the many amazing benefits that this type of sports hold.
High intensity exercise includes aerobic exercise and strength training exercise, but not necessarily in the same session. This blend helps maintain or improve cardiorespiratory and muscular fitness and overall health and function. Regular physical activity will provide more health benefits than sporadic, high intensity workouts, so choose exercises you are likely to enjoy and that you can incorporate into your schedule.
This type of training has been shown to improve:
- aerobic and anaerobic fitness
- blood pressure
- cardiovascular health
- insulin sensitivity (which helps the exercising
- muscles more readily use glucose for fuel to
- make energy)
- cholesterol profiles
- abdominal fat and body weight while
- maintaining muscle mass.
Exercise intensity is a subjective measure of how hard physical activity feels to you while you’re doing it your perceived exertion. Your perceived level of exertion may be different from what someone else feels doing the same exercise. For example, what feels to you like a hard run can feel like an easy workout to someone who’s more fit.
Your heart rate offers a more objective look at exercise intensity. In general, the higher your heart rate during physical activity, the higher the exercise intensity.
Studies show that your perceived exertion compares well with your heart rate. So if you think you’re working hard, your heart rate is probably higher than usual.
You can use either way of gauging exercise intensity. If you like technology, a heart rate monitor might be a useful device for you. If you feel you’re in tune with your body and your level of exertion, you likely will do fine without a monitor.
High intensity workouts are without question one of the most effective and time-efficient ways to exercise your cardiovascular system and burn fat, this why we have listed below the best exercises that you can try.
Running is an effective and efficient high-intensity way to improve and maintain fitness. Begin a routine over several weeks by walking as briskly as possible for 20 minutes. Running is a great option, as it burns more calories than most other types of exercise because it requires many different muscles to work hard together.
