Lose Fat with HIIT – 5 Fat-Burning Workouts

HIIT fat with these flab-melting routines.

Are you ready to HIIT that fat for good? You don’t need to sacrifice your life to endless workouts! In fact, you can burn off that jiggle during workouts that last as few as 10 minutes. Lose fat with HIIT in these 5 fat-burning workouts.

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is an exercise style that alternates intense energy bursts and brief periods of rest. One of the top benefits to any HIIT routine is what’s called the after-burn effect. This process happens when a high-intensity workout boosts the body’s need for oxygen, which, in turn, creates an oxygen shortage.

After the workout is done, the body must work harder to rebuild its oxygen stores. The result is an increase in calorie burn for up to 24 hours after you’ve wiped the last drop of sweat from your forehead.

What’s more, HIIT workouts are ideal for busy women. Some HIIT routines (like Tabata-style) can be completed in about four minutes; others can be done in fewer than 15 minutes. Another benefit to choosing HIIT workouts to burn fat is that you don’t need a gym membership or specialized equipment. You can do many of these routines with little more than a timer and perhaps light weights.

What are you waiting for? Get moving! While you’re at it, motivate your fat-burning workout moves with our HIIT Workout Playlist.
