High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a type of training that involves alternating short periods of very intense exercise with less intense recovery periods. It is a form of cardiovascular exercise that is said to vastly improve your athletic potential and overall health.
Here are two methods you can try:
Tabata Method: This method involves 20-seconds of very intense exercise (such as sprinting) followed by 10-seconds of rest. This is repeated eight times for a total of four minutes.
Little Method: This method involves 60-seconds of very intense exercise followed by 75-seconds of rest. This is repeated eight to twelve times.
These methods are effective and can be used by those who need to make efficient use of their time. Because they are cardiovascular exercise, your heart health could also improve by incorporating them. They can help maximize your fat burn and increase your metabolism as well.
