HIIT that

We have recently been re-introduced to a training method called HIIT – High-Intensity Interval Training. HIIT is a workout that alternates between vigorous high intense training and low-intense activity or even rest periods. For example, you may sprint hard for 1 minute, then walk for 2 mins and repeat this 5 times round. It may also sound easy and too simple to be doing anything but let us tell you – it is a killer and it has it’s benefits. Check out what HIIT can do for you:
It’s a fat blasting workout – You burn more calories doing HIIT training

Healthier heart – You are pushing your body into the anaerobic zone (where it feels like your heart is about to jump out of your chest), which in the long run is good for your heart

You don’t need the gym – This workout is free – all you need to do is hit the ground running (literally)

Keep the muscles – Combine HIIT with weight training and you have yourself a win/win – loose weight, not muscle and get toned.

Increase metabolism – HIIT stimulates human growth hormone (HGH) which is responsible for burning calories, and slowing down the ageing process.

Good luck!
