Yes it does, great for fitness and weight loss
YES, it works, theres many documents out there that agree. I have used it effectively for increasing fitness in clients who don’t want the long drag of steadier state cardio, I have used it effectively to burn additional calories in shorter times and to build anaerobic fitness
in tests: Short bursts of intense exercise 'better for weight loss' Bursts of high intensity interval training (Hiit) may be more effective for weight lossthan longer less intense workouts, a study suggests. ... Although all the participants lost weight, those doing Hiit saw a 28.5% greater weight loss.
Short sharp bursts of extreme exertion are similar to a high performance sports car doing traffic light burn outs, they use massive amounts of fuel compared to the slow steady driving you should be doing on the street ( we want to burn fuel fast)
HiiT also helps build your anaerobic threshold, by working within the markers for anaerobics, this in turn helps your aerobic threshold raise, something that does not happen the other way round. Great for sports that require short zapps of energy great for MMA and other fight sports, strongman, rugby etc.
I like the “Tabata” workout 20 seconds of massively hard work followed by 10 seconds rest repeated 8 plus times
But HIIT is perfect for people with a busy scheduletoo and if you can find 20 minutes in your day, you'll be burning fat for fun in no time. HIIT involves short bursts of intense exercise, followed by recovery periods of low-intensity activity or rest
