What is HIIT?

HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time. (http://dailyburn.com).

HIIT Benefits

  • Reduces lactate accumulation, meaning you can train for longer and harder

  • Increases your metabolism

  • HIIT workouts are generally done using your bodyweight, so don’t worry if you have no equipment
