Recent research and a few other influences piqued my interest to read a little about Fat Burner HIIT and test it to see if it actually works.
Fat Burner HIIT is actually recommended to those with PCOS, which seems like a huge mistake as it would raise stress in a person who’s health is already compromised. Realistically most HIIT programs out there would be a mistake for most people – it’s brutal.
So for those who don’t know, HIIT is High Intensity Interval Training. Think fast sprints, trying to do fast burpees non stop for 15 minutes, and cycle sprints. Cross Fit peeps go to a whole new level of HIIT craziness and incorporate weights in amongst all that, at a fast pace in circuits of different exercises. It’s a sure way to wreck your thyroid, slow your metabolism, completely stress your body out. For some, it leads to illnesses like chronic fatigue and Hashimotos disease.
So you might be wondering why I’m even bothering to talk about this if it’s so bad for your health!
Well as with most things, it’s the dosage makes the poison. It’s also a bit of a warning for those who think it’s actually good for you and a subtle point – OVER HERE – in the right direction of what to do instead!
So for the last month, I’ve been trialling a super easy version of FAT Burner HIIT. After reading a really interesting study on it, I created a more practical sequence for the rebounder and one without any equipment, so we could all do it at home.
Two things are critical to its success:
– the brevity of the session and how often you do it.
The results have been a trimming of fat around the mid section, which is often a difficult area to move for most. And the true test as to whether this activity is good for your health or not, I’ve been measuring my body temperature throughout and it has been staying at its recovered high levels.
So this is a fantastic indicator that it is actually beneficial for health as well.
Just a quick recap for those who are new to my blog, a low body temperature often means your metabolism is low and thyroid function is compromised. All of these things lowered my body temperature:
- Low carb
- Low calories
- Intermittent fasting
- Exercising on an empty stomach
- Coffee first thing in the morning
- Excessive exercise
So getting your temperature to 36.7C (98F) when you wake up and up to 37.7C (99.8F) after food is where it should be. Anything that lowers your temperature on an ongoing basis is bad for your health. It will lead to increasingly worse health issues, if you continue down that path.
