High-Intensity Interval Training, known as HIIT, has become the popular choice for those who want to slim down quickly and lose weight effectively.

Today, we’re going to explore the details that often get missed. Can I lose fat just by doing intense workouts like CrossFit or JIT? What’s the best intensity to lose weight faster?

Many people ask if it’s possible to lose fat just with intense workouts like CrossFit or the Tabata method.

The answer is yes, but here’s the key part: HIIT can be a strong tool in your weight loss plan, but it shouldn’t be the only thing you rely on.

Why is HIIT effective for fat loss?

HIIT is good for losing fat for several reasons:

It increases calorie burning: By adding it to your workout, your nervous system is working and releases adrenaline and noradrenaline, which helps to use up fat.

It boosts testosterone: Doing explosive and intense exercises, like sprints and jumps, raises testosterone production, which can lead to more muscle and a quicker metabolism.

Growth hormone: Because it challenges different energy systems, HIIT can encourage the production of growth hormone, key for fixing muscles and losing fat.

Other benefits

It reduces stress hormone: Even though they’re tough, HIIT is usually short, making it easier for your body to cope and lower cortisol, a stress hormone.

It helps make better energy cells: Hard workouts help create better cells, improving the body’s ability to burn fat.

One of the coolest things about HIIT is it keeps burning calories after you’re done.

After a hard workout, your body works to get back to normal and fix what was used up. This leads to burning calories for hours after exercising, so you’re losing fat even when you’re chilling, taking a shower, or sleeping.

HIIT and muscle mass preservation

Unlike some long cardio, HIIT involves strong muscle contractions that help keep muscle mass.

This is key to keeping a high metabolism and stopping muscle loss during weight loss. You don’t need to do HIIT every day. The best mix for losing fat usually has:

Strength: Two or three weekly sessions to stimulate muscle mass and increase resting caloric expenditure. HIIT: Two to three weekly sessions, this depends on your fitness level and goals.

Moderate-intensity cardio: One or two weekly sessions to keep balance and help remove fat cells.

Conclusion: HIIT is part of the solution, not the only one

While HIIT can be a strong tool for losing fat, it shouldn’t be the only thing you do.

Having an active lifestyle and eating right are key. Also, it’s key not to overdo it and to balance HIIT with other kinds of training.

In short, HIIT is a good way to slim down, but it should be part of a bigger plan that includes strength and moderate-intensity cardio.
