A HIIT Program With Olympic Lifts and Power Lifts

The spotlight is once again shining on the benefits of high intensity interval training (HIIT).  A new study from the Mayo Clinic recently found powerful anti-aging benefits of this type of interval training.  Other benefits of HIIT include increased endurance, mega calorie burning, boost metabolism, burns calories long after you leave the gym, great for the heart and blasts fat. If HIIT is one of the healthiest ways to exercise, then one can only assume that adding in two of the most popular types of weightlifting; Olympic Weightlifting and Powerlifting, can only create a powerful exercise regimen.

At Ultimate Fit Zone in Monmouth County, our cross training program combines, HIIT, Olympic lifts and powerlifting to create an exercise program that fights the aging process, dramatically boosts your cardio performance and  helps to create strong, powerful bodies.

Olympic weightlifting may seem like a sport only ridiculously strong men or women can do.  Not true.  Although what we see on TV may portray this idea, ANYONE can participate in a program that includes Olympic lifts. At our HIIT gym in Monmouth County, we’ll teach you the lifts as well as how to perform them safely within the workouts.   The two olympic lifts are the Snatch and the Clean & Jerk.  The benefits of performing these lifts include:

  • Increasing lean body mass and reducing body fat (weightlifting will NOT make you bulky.  Just the opposite.  You’ll see the shape of your body change as you melt fat and sculpt lean muscle tissue)
  • You’ll strengthen and sculpt your back, arms, shoulders and entire core area
  • Better bone health: Weightlifting increases bone mineral density
  • Great brain workout!  Even though it’s your body that’s performing the movement, learning and perfecting the exercises boosts brain activity, concentration, coordination and balance

Powerlifting movements consists of the squat, deadlift and bench.  We incorporate the squat and deadlift into many of our workouts.  Benefits include:

  • Strengthen the muscles of your legs, back and upper body
  • The squat works the muscles of your legs and hips better than many other training alternatives, according to a 2001 study published in “Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise.”
  • Powerlifting burns LOTS of calories
  • You do not have to lift heavy to get the benefits, we help you choose a weight that’s comfortable and safe for you
  • Increases strength and bone mass, reducing risk of osteoporosis
