Extreme training, is used it as a comon name to define an extreme athletic training in sports other than the athlete’s usual sport. The goal is improving overall performance, that includes the ten physical conditions and habilities. It takes advantage of the particular effectiveness of one training method to negate the shortcomings of another. Usually performed in groups (45 -60 minutes).

In general sports, extreme training in sports and fitness involves combining exercises to work various parts of the body. Often one particular activity works certain muscle groups, but not others; extreme training aims to eliminate this imbalance.

Weight training is a common type of strength training include it in the extreme trainings for developing the strength and size of skeletal muscles. It utilizes the force of gravity in the form of weighted bars, dumbbells or weight stacks in order to oppose the force generated by muscle through concentric or eccentric contraction. Weight training uses a variety of specialized equipment to target specific muscle groups and types of movement. Strength workouts in extreme trainings is becoming increasingly popular.

Gymnastics is a sport, also very popular and cinluded as a main workout in extreme trainings, involving the performance of exercises requiring balance, strength, flexibility, agility, endurance and control. The movements involved in gymnastics contribute to the development of the arms, legs, shoulders, chest and abdominal muscle groups. Alertness, precision, daring, self-confidence and self-discipline are mental traits that can also be developed through gymnastics. Gymnastics evolved from exercises used by the ancient Greeks that included skills for mounting and dismounting a horse, and from circus performance skills.


High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a system of organizing cardiorespiratory training which calls for repeated bouts of short duration, high-intensity exercise intervals intermingled with periods of lower intensity intervals of active recovery. On a 1-10 scale of perceived exertion, high intensity can be considered anything over an effort level of 7. When using max heart rate (MHR) as a guide, high intensity can be considered exercising above 80% of MHR. Modes of HIIT can include outdoor activities such as running or cycling, or using equipment such as treadmills, elliptical runners, stair-climbers or stationary bikes. HIIT training calls for challenging work-rates such as sprints (whether on a bicycle or running) for short time frames lasting from thirty seconds to two minutes.


It has been theorized that the combination functional moves executed in a high intensity way may benefit muscle size and cortisol levels, but this has not been substantiated by a body of good medical evidence. Using global moves, with unpredictable trainings in a high intensity, makes the extreme training a unique workout to burn fat mass and increase the volumen of quality muscle.

One of the major benefits of HIIT is that using the appropriate work-to-recovery intervals can train the body how to become efficient at producing and using energy from the anaerobic energy system. This type of session can also train the body to effectively remove metabolic waste from the muscles between the work intervals. In addition, HIIT also serves as an effective way to increase VO2 max without having to run for long distances or periods of time. Due to the high level of intensity and the amount of time necessary to appropriately recover from the exercise session, it is recommended to do no more than two days of HIIT per week, allowing at least one full day of recovery between training sessions.


The risk of injury associated with extreme trainings has been a controversial question since the popularity of these workouts began to climb in the early 2000s. Critics have accused the extreme trends of using dangerous movements, inappropriate levels of intensity, and allowing under-qualified individuals to become trainers.

The risk of injury for HIIT workouts it’s in relationship with cardiovascular and heart deceases. In order to prevent any injury or problem due the high intensity levels, we recommend to visit the doctor prior to start any metabolic or cardiovascular workout.
