"High-intensity interval training (H.I.I.T.), is a form of interval training, a cardiovascular exercise strategy alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less intense recovery periods. H.I.I.T. is the concept where one performs a short burst of high-intensity (or max-intensity) exercise followed by a brief low-intensity activity, repeatedly, until too exhausted to continue." - Wikipedia
Do you ever have one of those rushed days where you're wondering how you could possibly fit in a workout when you still have to go grocery shopping, pick the dog up from the vet, take the kids to soccer practice, make dinner and fold allllll that laundry? That's where H.I.I.T. comes into play! The true beauty of this exercise? You don't even need equipment! Yeah, that's right. A simple yoga mat on your floor is all you'll really need. Using your body weight instead of weights can also work wonders! You'll be building strength and endurance all on your own- literally! Of course you can add weights to your H.I.I.T. cardio session, but if you're crunched for time or simply don't go to a gym and prefer home workouts- this is just for you!
