It takes 100 days to grow rice, but only two seconds to throw it away.
I like this analogy, but especially when applied to fitness. Anybody can claim that they are adhering to and following a lifestyle or fitness regime, but unless practiced with consistency, even the most disciplined of athletes and trainers can get off track.
Finding the level of activity that both works for your lifestyle and is enjoyable is key. Determining what will help you get to your goals, and including variety and accountability, will bring you that much closer to getting full of autonomy over your wellness.
This is where the hundred days of HIIT comes into play for me!
Over the past few years, I have learned which physical activity my body responds to the most depending on my particular goals. By and large, strength training has been the ultimate tool and modality for changing my body composition. But the most effective for fat loss, to increase my endurance, and to incorporate strength training, has been HIIT training.
HIIT stands for high intensity interval training, where are you combine short spurts of intense activity paired with low to moderate physical activity to switch your metabolic energy outputs. This proven and effective way of exercising allows you to burn more calories and FAT versus simply achieving weight loss over a greater period of time. Over the course of the next hundred days, I will attach information and resources to help you better understand the importance of HIIT and different kinds of HIIT training strategies.
My goals going into this challenge are to have more accountability for myself, to allow my clients and the average fitness participant new and engaging ways to stay active, and to see the transition that my body can make with consistency.
I will be tracking not only my stats including weight, but also my energy levels, the duration of my training, the time of day that I train, the type of HIIT performed, and other variables such as food intake.
In the spirit of authenticity and accountability, I will periodically post pictures of the activities, and also of my body transition, to show that I am a real person who struggles with discipline from time to time just like everybody else.
If you were interested in partaking in 100 days of HIIT, you can start at any time.
