Thoroughly enjoyed chatting all things parkHIIT with Beibhinn Byrne and Liam Coburn on the Q102 breakfast show this week. My big hairy audacious goal is to bring my free parkHIIT sessions to every county and community in Ireland so it was great to be able to promote this over the airwaves.
In case you missed it, you can catch the interview right here:
What is parkHIIT?
For the uninitiated, parkHIIT is a free outdoor interval training session based around bodyweight resistance exercises. When we promote the importance of exercise in Ireland, that promotion is heavily weighted in favour of cardiovascular exercise. Cardiovascular exercise is incredibly important and we should be getting at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity cardiovascular exercise per week according to the World Health Organization.
Most people are fairly familiar with that recommendation (which is often broken out as 30 minutes exercise per day). What is not so well known, is the recommendation from the WHO for at least two resistance training sessions per week!
I’m on a mission to promote the importance of resistance training exercise with parkHIIT!
