HIIT

You’re probably wondering what HIIT means.

HIIT – high intensity interval training. A workout that alternates between intense bursts of activity and less-intense periods of activity lasting no longer than 20 minutes.In other words, my favorite cardio workout.

HIIT training is ideal for those looking to burn fat thus losing weight without losing precious muscle. After all those intense bursts a HIIT workout will send your body’s repair cycle into hyperdrive which means after burn. So you’ll be burning more fat and calories in the 24 hour period after your workout than you would after a steady-paced run. Not to mention HIIT workouts are extremely versatile so you can choose your weapon, whether it be a treadmill, bike, or even laps in a pool.

I just finished my HIIT workout on the treadmill after training shoulders today and it felt great so I thought I’d share it.
