HIIT Your Limit: High-Intensity Interval Training for Fat Loss, Cardio, and Full Body Health by Dr. Len Kravitz
Full review on my blog.
A few months ago, YouTube “recommended” me a HIIT (High Intensity Intervals Training) video. I tried it out and was amazed: I could only do half of it and I felt that my body couldn’t have been worked more intensely in those 20 minutes. That was when the book I am reviewing today came into the picture to help me understand this kind of training better and schedule my own routines.
The first half of the books is dedicated to biology and physiology and includes data and research to better understand how the body works during and after exercise, focusing on HIIT in particular and what the benefits of this training are. For those of you who have already tried it, you would have noticed that you can do much more in less time, but it also helps improve cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and cardiorespiratory fitness faster than other kinds of training.
Now, to the HIIT workouts. I like that the author recommends reducing your normal workouts and add HIIT ones instead of increasing the total amount of weekly exercise, which was what I had in mind when I started reading the book, and had an exponential increase in anxiety because you don’t really know if you will ever find the time to do it all.
Regarding the workouts themselves, I found them very beginner-like, thought to be done only with a certain exercise mode instead of creating different exercises for every interval, which is what I have been trying lately and found more enjoyable. Don’t get me wrong – I truly believe they are good workouts, but doing running work and recovery intervals is what I have always called “Interval Training”, but not “High Intensity Interval Training”.
I think the book is primarily targeted towards people who hasn’t developed a steady habit of exercising, so they can start by including these short but effective workouts in their weekly routines and get fast results. For the rest, the book will make you aware of those intervals you only did from time to time and how it is better to focus more often on them without increasing the total amount of time devoted to exercise, in order to achieve your aimed weight and fitness level.

Some people swear by HIIT workouts. Others wonder what they even are. In short, HIIT stands for high-intensity interval training, which involves a short workout and quick bursts of energy with quick resting periods. Most HIIT workouts are not more than 30 minutes. Trainers recommend these types of workouts because they burn serious energy, which helps you burn more fat and calories. Plus, the body keeps burning energy long after the workout.

Home Exercise. Even for her, the first workout was killer. While Williams was in shape at the time, at pounds and a size six, HIIT training was what finally gave her the confidence—and super-star strength—she craved. She only lost five pounds and one pant size, but the difference in her muscle definition was noticeable. For those who want to try their skills in this type of exercise, Williams suggests trial-and-error so you can find a routine that really keeps you engaged. Williams is onto something; exercise has many benefits that have absolutely nothing to do with weight loss.
