HIIT-High Intensity Interval Training!
Today I wanted to share more about HIIT workouts! It's one of my favorite ways to workout at home, or anywhere for that matter!
Lately, I've been doing a mix of HIIT, weight lifting, and core work! Then, on off days, I've finally picked running up again! And it has for sure helped with my endurance, and I love getting to mix the workouts together!
Here's WHY YOU SHOULD BE DOING HIIT WORKOUTS!
HIIT workouts are ideal for you, the busy woman, who seems to never be able to find time to workout. Let's admit it, usually we put everything else first. Work, house chores, kids activities, anything else we can think of...then maybe if we have time we fit in a workout.
The great thing about HIIT is that awesome things are happening, but quickly! Usually a HIIT workout lasts no more than 15-30 minutes. You are looking to do intense movements at full energy level for a short amount of time. So it is just easier to make time to get it done!
This means you have plenty of times to do the other things you love....like for me, lately, it's been getting to run more, and hang out with my family!
Plus, what makes that 15-30 minutes even better...is that even though you are giving it all you have for that short amount of time. Taking yourself to the edge of exhaustion, and pushing hard...you are seeing the impacts for the next 24 hours.
When you enter into that anaerobic state, it kicks your body into hyper drive to start burning calories. Which is exactly what we want. As a matter of fact, your body continues burning calories for the next 24 hours following a successful HIIT workout.
