I get asked all the time my recommendations for an “all in one” workout that leaves you sweaty and makes you feel accomplished. My answer is always HIIT workouts.
So what the heck is HIIT workout? HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is a type of cardio /strength workout that has short periods of maximum effort followed by short periods of rest. Typically HIIT workouts are shorter so that you can give 100% effort the entire time. Because you are going 100% you are pushing your heart rate which means more calories burn that an average cardio workout. HIIT workouts make your muscle lean and strong. They are only meant to be done 2-3 times per week. (While mixing in your regular workout routine in between) After several weeks you will start to know the difference in your breathing. For those of you that hate long workouts on a treadmill or elliptical or simply do not have the time to workout – this HIIT workout is for you. HIIT workouts give you fast and positive results
I have plenty more on my blog. All you have to do is type “HIIT” in the Search bar or go to my Fitness page.
