If you have a friend who is all about their fitness, you have probably heard about HIIT, or high-intensity interval training. This isn’t a casual run through the park, or lifting weights at your own pace. This is an all in workout, meant to get you to push yourself to your limits for a short period of time.
HIIT workouts get your heart rate up and keeps it up, allowing you to burn more fat and spend less time doing it. In a HIIT workout, you will go through bursts. Some of these bursts are intense and get your pushing yourself as hard as possible, then you will go through periods of activity that are less intense and allow you to rest a little. These intervals are used to help you stay active, get your heart rate up, and burn fat!
