Benefits of High-Intensity Burpees

Benefits of High-Intensity Burpees

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) alternating intense and short exercise bouts with rest, results in fast increases in fitness.

A Canadian study on HIIT discovered that two weeks of training increased exercise capacity by 22%, maximal oxygen consumption by 17%, glycogen storage by 28%, and citrate synthase (a measure of cellular oxygen consumption) by 38%.

A study from the University of Georgia discovered that performing four sets of burpees at max intensity for 30 seconds, followed by four minutes of rest, provided a physiological load that was similar to HIIT exercise on a stationary bike.

Athletes can use a range of high-intensity techniques to build fitness fast.
