Doing HIIT On An Empty Stomach

High intensity interval training is a great way to burn fat but most people fail to change their nutrition accordingly and don't get the results their hard efforts in the gym deserve. In this post we show you how to tailor both your diet and your supplements to perfectly balance your fat loss and muscle gains when using HIIT.

Your workouts will be greatly improved by following the simple steps shown in today's article.

For years a lot of people have believed that you should hit the gym without eating beforehand. This is more habit than fact, however, as science points in the opposite direction. Numerous studies have shown that the benefits of hitting the gym with the right nutrition inside your body will greatly enhance your performance and results.

The majority of gym users discovered high intensity interval training in the last ten years but this technique has been used in sports for over twenty years, so research into the nutritional aspect is anything but sparse. The problem is, however, most people short change themselves by not taking any time out to discover what they need to change with their diet to make the most of this new way of performing cardio for fat loss.

Most people who perform high intensity cardio are doing so because they have heard it helps you to lose weight much faster, so today we're going to specifically focus on how to get the most from the fat loss benefits. These two rules are very important:

* Studies show that trainers who consume 20 grams of whey protein around 20 miuntes before a high intensity interval workout were able to continue burning calories at a far higher rate than those who went in on an empty stomach. Furthermore, this extra calorie burning lasted a massive 24 hours.

* Try adding some essential amino acids to your supplement routine and consuming them before your cardio workout to maximize results. EAA's are proven to help retain muscle mass while burning fat.

There are two sides to the workout window, and those folks who insist on only feeding their body after a session are missing out on some great results. Ensure you hit your next high intensity level training fully prepared with protein and essential amino acids.

When looking at Essential Amino Acids, for example, research concludes that having them before a workout is superior to taking them post-workout. Two groups trialed this a few years ago and while the post-workout group were able to take up 16% of the amino's the pre-workout group enjoyed a massive 42% muscle uptake.

So there you have it, folks. To get the most from your HIIT session you should consume a simple whey protein supplement and some essential amino acids prior to your session, followed by a decent protein shake afterwards. Chances are you were already consuming your post-workout shake anyway, so this tiny little change will help kick-start your high intensity interval training to the next level and bring unparalleled fat loss results to you.
