Bootcamp (not to be confused with “Military” style bootcamp), uses a unique training formula known as “HIIT”. This stands for High Intensity Interval Training which is basically alternating short bursts of high intensity exercises with brief periods of rest.
Burn More Calories in Less Time
By doing short bursts of exercise mixed with rest, you shoot your calorie-burning through the roof!
Even during the brief rests, the calorie-burning never drops down much before you are doing another burst of exercise.
Plus the workouts need to be shorter or else you won’t be able to give it your all during the entire workout.
Most people have busy lives so who wouldn’t want to get a workout in that is shorter AND more effective at burning fat than long, steady state cardio.
Build muscle – Burn fat even while you sleep
Bootcamp also involves resistance training. This adds muscle tone and makes you stronger.
And the best part is, not only does it look good but muscle tissue burns more calories — even when you’re at rest — than body fat.
Healthy looks better than skinny
I know some people think “I don’t want to get bulky”. Luckily, unless a woman trains like a professional Bodybuilder, she lacks the testosterone needed to pack on huge amounts of muscle. Strength training does however, give you great muscle tone that you can’t get from straight cardio. Only doing cardio means constantly breaking down muscle instead of building lean muscle tissue to support your bones.
When you do the same workout day in and day out, your body gets used it and it eventually becomes ineffective and creates boredom. Bootcamp classes are always different and challenge your body in completely different and new ways which keeps your body guessing and helps prevent hitting plateaus. This type of exercise will help you improve, lose weight and move closer to your goals. Plus the exercises used in bootcamp can be progressed and regressed according to each individual’s abilities.
Bootcamp workouts use “Functional Movements”. This means it uses movement that you use in everyday life.
Whether it’s carrying groceries, climbing stairs or bending over to pick up something heavy, bootcamp makes it easier.
The “AFTERBURN” effect.
The afterburn effect is simply additional energy expenditure that occurs after exercise.
Once you rev up your engine with a bootcamp style workouts, it takes a long time for it to slow back down. Your body’s metabolism continues to run fast and burn extra calories well after your workout. This means you can still reap the benefits of that workout up to 48 hours later. Which means more bang for your buck!!
