High-tech Lives Spur Back-to-basic Fitness Workouts

Once the domain of fitness fanatics, high-intensity interval training is poised to hit the mainstream in 2014, according to a new survey from the American College of Sports Medicine. Weve never seen something be introduced to http://www.prweb.com/releases/2013/10/prweb11222047.htm the market and catch on so fast, says Walt Thompson, regents professor of kinesiology at Georgia State University and lead author of the ACSM report. Hes talking about home workout DVDs like P90X or Insanity, or gyms like CrossFit and the rapidly expanding Orangetheory Fitness. Last year, high intensity interval training programs didn't even crack the top 20 on the ACSM's annual list predicting fitness trends for the upcoming year. This year, it's at the top. High intensity interval training, or HIIT, refers to workouts in which bouts of intense exercise are alternated with bouts of either rest of low-intensity activity.

As Dr. Walter Thompson of ACSM states, it appears that people are going back to basics. HIIT uses short, intense bouts of activity with a short rest period. The programs use bodyweight exercises and are scalable, so that people can push their own pace and intensity during their workouts. Many studies have shown that these types of workouts increase an individuals level of fitness faster than a steady state cardiovascular routine, like jogging, can do.

"With every minute taken up by social media, and people never out of a working state, (it's) a way for people to get these workouts in," she explained. Cyrus' observation are supported by a recent survey by the American College of Sports Medicine, which predicted High Intensity Interval Training and bodyweight training will be the top two fitness trends of 2014. "It appears that people are going back to basics," said Dr. Walter Thompson of ASCM, which has conducted the survey since 2008.

It's tempting to settle into living room DVD hibernation mode, no matter how much I remind myself about the benefits of exercising outside. Naturally, aside from a warm pair of gloves, it takes some pretty motivating music to get me out the door -- and maybe a little delusional dreaming visualization that I'm actually somewhere warm. So pop in some earbuds and listen to these warm tunes. Maybe, just maybe, we can will the cold away. Canned Heat -- Jamiroquai Ice Box, DJ Nabs Remix feat.
