LISS or Low Intensity Steady State is a training method that allows you to maintain a constant state of exertion for a prolonged period of time.
The benefit of LISS is the relative ease at which it can be performed. It’s as easy as getting on a treadmill and walking. LISS is often used by those looking to achieve fat loss, due to it’s tendency to metabolise fat as energy opposed to dietary carbohydrates. Other benefits of LISS also include;
Improved blood pressure
Improved cardio vascular health
Improved fitness levels
Improved cognitive development
Improved insulin sensitivity
Improved cholesterol readings
Another huge benefit of LISS is that you don’t need advanced fitness levels to begin. You will gradually see your fitness improve as you progress.
We recommend you try the following 3 times a week.
Day 1 – 45 minutes incline walking on treadmill
Day 2 – 45 minutes wattbike (low resistance)
Day 3 – 45 minutes stair master
Be sure to ask our Fitness Instructors for help implementing LISS into your workout routine.
