People who burn out frequently from migraines, may want to burn their bodies more during their workouts.
Research in Switzerland suggests that people who partake in high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts have significantly less migraines.
What is HIIT?
Named one of the top fitness trends of 2017, HIIT workouts are a training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time.
Boosts the Need for Oxygen
HIIT workouts increases the body’s need for oxygen by creating an oxygen shortage, causing your body to ask for more oxygen during recovery. Researchers believe the ultimate oxygen uptake has a profound impact on reducing migraine attacks and cerebrovascular health.
Other Benefits of HIIT Workouts
1. Quick and Convenient
HIIT workouts can be done anywhere: at home, in a hotel room, in a park, at the beach, etc. And most are 30 minutes or less!
2. No Equipment Necessary
HIIT workouts generally use only your body weight, since the focus is on getting your heart rate up and keeping it there.
