High Intensity Interval Training keeps burning fat after the workout is done.
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), typically includes a short warm up, followed by several high intensity exercises, with low intensity recovery periods or rest, and lastly a cool down. When performing this HIIT, near maximum effort is required.
Keep in mind that HIIT increases the amount of fat burn during exercise routines and continues to do so for up to 24 hours. The time it takes the body to recover from each training period takes longer than if doing a steady pace while training, which is why caloric/fat burn continues for a period of time after the workout is over. True HIIT typically lasts 15-20 minutes. Our Fat Blasting HIIT Workout is designed to Burn Fat up to 24 Hours
Equipment Needed: Interval timer
What to Do: Perform each exercise for 30 seconds then rest for 15 seconds. Complete 5 circuits for a total of 15 minutes.
1. Mountain Climber
2. Air Squats
3. Split Jumps
4. Side Burpees
