DAILY WORKOUT – HIIT TRAINING

HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training.  It is a form of training that combines an intense, short burst of exercise with a short rest period. It has been proven to effectively promote fat loss, improve metabolism and help build muscle.

I love HIIT training because it is quick and effective (a HIIT workout should be no longer than 30 minutes).  Also, you are constantly changing movement from maximal effort to rest, so you never get bored!

You don’t need a gym HIIT training either.  It can be done with bodyweight exercises and even weighted exercises.  For todays workout, I have provided a HIIT Workout for HOME and the GYM and for all Fitness levels.  You will need to access to a treadmill for the GYM workout, and no equipment needed for the HOME.
