High intensive interval training (HIIT) is one of the most effective training principle today. It combines two of best known training methods in one time-efficient way:
the first ist high-intensity training, that pushes to get a maximum effort to achieve muscle fatigue and to consume maximum oxygen in a quick burst. this is measured to one’s VO2 max, which is the highest amount of oxygen, your body consumes during exercise. Working close to your VO2 max triggers the afterburn effect, where the body continues to consume more oxygen up to 48 hours after the workout.
the second is interval training, which alternates periods of intensive effort with periodes of short breaks / low-intensity effort. This boost metabolism significantly longer than a steady workout of equal or greater length.
Thank you for your valuable feedback! This version contains the missing countdown at the beginning as well as the possiblity to completly remove the audio (just toggle with the speaker-button at the bottom of the screen.)
Ratings and Reviews
Perfect for Tabata training.
Audio too low when playing music
Does what it's supposed to, but when you play music from the same device through a loudspeaker, it will sometime drown out the countdown...
Perfect Tabata timer
So quick and simple. Looked for this on the app store and downloaded this one first....no need to look for another.
I would definitely pay for a version where u can save workouts or plan which exercises it tells you to do next, etc.
