Rev Up Your Engine with Energy-boosting Workouts
If you have been training regularly for some time, you may have noticed a boost in your energy levels after certain workouts. Well, as it turns out, this is one of the many benefits of training!
That said, not all training methods promote or increase energy in the same way, and there are certain ways to train that increase energy more than others.
Now gentlemen, start your engines. Here’s the lowdown on how to rev up with the best ways to train to increase energy.
The Top Energy-Boosting Workouts
Lots of people find that when they’ve run or cycled for a long distance, they’ll walk away with feeling an incredible increase in energy.
Not everyone will experience this energy boost, however - it’s all down to whether you’ve been working out at the appropriate intensity or for the right length of time.
When you train for more than 20 minutes and at a moderate intensity, your body releases many hormones.
One of these hormones, Serotonin, is linked to energy levels, so it's no wonder that you feel energized after aerobic training if you go about it the right way.
High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
HIIT is another powerful method of training to increase your energy levels.
When you break a sweat with a HIIT workout factoring in the appropriate work and rest intervals, Serotonin and Endorphins are released.
And because HIIT has the ability to release both these hormones, you will have noticed you feel exhilarated and energized.
HIIT and aerobic training have the ability to ramp up your energy levels, so if you’re looking for that energy rush and not currently working out with HIIT or aerobic training, now is the time to start!
