HIIPA Workouts: A New HIIT Workout to Do Throughout the Day

3 Shares

I believe, for the most part, that we need more exercise whenever possible.

So much stuff is becoming automated that we are barely moving.

And…

We are spending a lot of time in front of screens.

There was an article recently published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine that discusses an interesting way to get extra exercise.

It talks about HIIPA.

HIIPA stands for High-Intensity Incidental Physical Activity.

What is Incidental Physical Activity (PA)?

Incidental PA is any activity that is part of one’s daily living that is not done with the purpose of recreation or health and requires no sacrifice of discretionary time. For example, walking or cycling to move from place to place, stair climbing and active daily chores, such as carrying heavy shopping bag and house cleaning.

The article discusses just slightly ramping up the intensity of these brief activities…

3-5 brief HIIPA sessions totaling as little as five to 10 minutes a day.

I have a ton of deep cleaning I need to do in my house.

I’m going to do them in 10-15 minute intervals 3 times per day until my house is spotless.

I may even wear my Mr. Clean costume again to worry the neighbors.

This all sounds a little ridiculous.

But…

There was a study a while back about hotel maids who were told how many calories their activities burned VS a control group.

The maids who believed their jobs were great exercise lost more weight and health improved vs control group. It is believed they upped the intensity of their cleaning a bit since they viewed it differently.

Same activity, different mindset.

If you are going to do tasks anyway, you may as well get additional health benefits from them.

Want to combine the fat loss effects of “wax on, wax off” exercise with HIIT?

I highly recommend Visual Impact Cardio.

This is an 8 week course that uses HIIT in a way that increases VO2 max.

Once your VO2 max is increased, you wind up burning more calories and fat from ANY activity.
