Should You Perform HIIT Before Eating?
Most people who perform HIIT don’t support their workout with the proper nutrition. Today we clear up the fog surrounding what you should do with your diet and supplements to make the most of high intensity interval training.
Your workouts will be greatly improved by following the simple steps shown in today’s article.
For years a lot of people have believed that you should hit the gym without eating beforehand. This is more habit than fact, however, as science points in the opposite direction. Numerous studies have shown that the benefits of hitting the gym with the right nutrition inside your body will greatly enhance your performance and results.
This form of cardio is still relatively new to the regular gym user, but has been used by athletes for the biggest part of three decades, so while the majority of trainers are already aware that nutrition needs to be changed when working with interval training, the regular gym goer sometimes gets stuck in the wrong way of thinking.
The majority of individuals who utilize a high intensity cardio approach are looking for fat loss results rather than athletic performance so that is the area we will focus on today. There are two key things you can do to enhance your fat loss workout considerably:
* Ignore the theories about doing high intensity training on an empty stomach because that’s all they are, theories! Studies show that people who consume a whey protein serving of around 20 grams before their gym session are able to burn calories and lose fat at a greatly enhanced rate over an entire 24 hour period compared to those running on empty before their session.
* Essential amino acids are also fantastic. These will work with your protein supplement to help you retain lean muscle while you burn off fat in the gym.
There are two sides to the workout window, and those folks who insist on only feeding their body after a session are missing out on some great results. Ensure you hit your next high intensity level training fully prepared with protein and essential amino acids.
When looking at Essential Amino Acids, for example, research concludes that having them before a workout is superior to taking them post-workout. Two groups trialed this a few years ago and while the post-workout group were able to take up 16% of the amino’s the pre-workout group enjoyed a massive 42% muscle uptake.
So there you have it, folks. To get the most from your HIIT session you should consume a simple whey protein supplement and some essential amino acids prior to your session, followed by a decent protein shake afterwards. Chances are you were already consuming your post-workout shake anyway, so this tiny little change will help kick-start your high intensity interval training to the next level and bring unparalleled fat loss results to you.
