High- intensity interval training, but what does it really mean? Sweat and tears. This type of training became known as up to 50% more efficient than traditional low-intensity, long-time training programmes. Lately, sport’s teachers have attempted to diversify Games activities. For this action, many students were waiting for. But what do they think now that their wish has come true? Kieran from year 13 said that HIIT is “better than rugby- you stay inside, so only time you get is when you sweat”. I personally think that the great advantage of it is that it allows you to burn a lot of calories in a short time, leaving plenty of spare time to study so it’s great option in exam period. However, as James Watson, rugby said “also people seem to get more involved in HIIT than in other activities, we also need to practise rugby for matches”. I guess the best solution is to keep on doing HIIT training when it’s bad weather and before exams. If that’s not enough for you though, there are HIIT trainings sessions after school on Wednesdays.
