High Intensity Training (HIT) is an approach to exercise that emphasizes training with a high intensity of effort, keeping your workouts brief, and giving your body time between workouts for recovery and adaptation. When performed properly, HIT is the most effective, efficient, and safest way to train to build muscle, lose fat, and get fit.

If you’re new to HIT and want to learn what it is and how to do it the articles and books below cover all the basics. If you’ve been doing HIT for a while and want information on more advanced topics, use the search tool to the right to find what you’re looking for. For the most recent articles visit the blog page using the menu above.
