The basis of high intensity interval training (HIIT) is to give high-intensity effort for quick bursts followed by short periods of rest.
Since the AirRunner is powered by your own energy, all you have to do to attain a muscle-burning HIIT workout is to sprint for 10 seconds (beginner), 20 seconds (intermediate), or 30 seconds (advanced) followed by a 30-second recovery period of light walking or jogging. The best HIIT results will be obtained by pushing yourself to 80% of your max effort while sprinting.
By repeating the process of sprinting followed by recovery for 21 phases, you’ve now completed a 14 (beginner) to 21 (advanced) minute workout that burned a ton of calories and more importantly, will continue to burn calories (and fat) for the next 16 to 24 hours! So now you can watch TV on the couch confidently knowing your body is doing the work for you!
Studies found that 20 minutes of HIIT can produce the same aerobic and anaerobic benefits as exercising for twice as long with steady, continuous effort. Plus, HIIT can boost your metabolism, endurance, and muscle growth!
In addition to this basic HIIT workout, our resident trainer has designed many more options for HIIT training with the AirRunner. Sign up today and receive weekly workout ideas so you can make the most of the burn!
