H.I.I.T. stands for High Intensity Interval Training. H.I.I.T. alternates between high intensity exercise and short periods of rest, then repeats the sequence or circuit. Short periods of high intensity exercise followed by short periods of rest, burns more calories and subsequently more body fat than maintaining a steady pace.
This arm workout combines weight lifting, which targets the tricep and bicep muscles, and cardiovascular exercise, which targets the fat covering up the arm muscles. By combining strength training and cardio you are creating a powerful fat burning routine, making you a fat burning machine that continues to burn fat for up to 24 hours after the workout is over.
While interval workouts are great for burning fat and sculpting a lean body, the recipe for getting healthy, losing excess body fat, and creating a toned & defined body, is created by consistently combining these three elements: A Clean Eating Plan, High Intensity Interval Training, and Weight Training.
Equipment Needed: Two sets of dumbbells, one light weight set(3-5 lbs) and one medium weight set(8-12) and interval timer.
What to Do: Perform each exercise for 30 seconds and rest 10 seconds after each one; complete four circuits. For optimal results, complete this or one of the other arm workouts up to 3 x’s weekly.
