I was originally going to write a blog about the different health benefits that endurance training (slow jogging) offered compared to High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). I soon found out that each topic was so complex that I would have to write two separate blogs. I chose to write about HIIT first.
I heard of HIIT training years ago but never really tried it out. I recently grew bored doing incline walks and 25 minute jogs on the treadmill. Instead of walking or jogging, I decided to do sprints on the treadmill (not really all out sprints, more like fast jogs) where I would run quickly for 90 seconds followed by 2 minutes of rest continuously for 26 minutes. This is essentially what High Intensity Interval Training is.
