HIRT can increase your overall fitness, including your aerobic endurance or VO2 max. VO2max is a measure of how efficiently your body takes up oxygen during exercise.
HIRT focuses on resistance training. You can select exercises for your workout that don’t have a high impact on your joints and still experience the benefits of high-intensity training.
A high-intensity resistance workout doesn’t necessarily require gym machines. You can do a workout using your bodyweight, dumbbells, kettlebells and resistance bands.
