Have you every heard of a HIIT workout? It’s called high intensity interval training and it’s name doesn’t do it justice because – it is more than just intense.
And hiit workouts are all the rage nowadays, with everyone touting them as the ultimate new workout. But all the hype is actually warranted in this case because these short but very intense workouts will have you melting away the fat.
I’m not sure who invented this method of exercise but I can tell you from experience it’s so great. And there are a lot of different types of workouts that are HIIT friendly.
In fact, it doesn’t matter what kind of workout you’re doing because it can be done in a HIIT style – from strength training to cardio. And some studies suggest that these kinds of workouts actually burn fat multiple times faster than normal workout routines.
But what kind of HIIT style workout is right for you? A lot of websites on the internet tout a bunch of “amazing” hiit workouts, but I’ve only found one page that reviews the best hiit workout dvds properly – Axles of Evil.
It’s a health and fitness website and it has a section dedicated to the best hiit dvds that you can get online. And sure, you don’t need a structured workout to take advantage of hiit. But it sure as hell helps keep things interesting.
Even 15 minute HIIT routines can get boring after a while. So I’d definitely suggest checking out that article I posted about above. It’ll give you a pretty good idea of what’s involved and which hiit workout you should pick for yourself.
So what about you? Have you ever tried a HIIT workout? What were your experiences? Did you lose weight/would you continue it, etc?
