The popularity of high intensity interval training (HIIT) has been on the rise for years, and understanding how to successfully implement a HIIT program in your facility is essential. According to ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine), HIIT involves repeated bouts of high intensity work followed by varied lower intense recovery times. The intense work periods are typically performed at or above 80% of the theoretical max heart rate, which should feel “hard or very hard” for the exerciser. And it varies in length from as short as 10 seconds to several minutes long. Recovery periods are usually performed at 40 to 50% estimated max HR, which should feel “very comfortable” to the individual and last the same length, less or more than the intense periods.
