What is HIIT?
HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training. This type of calorie burning workout is great for weightloss, burning fat and the perfect addition to your current weight training program. When you do a HIIT workout routine, you combine bursts of quick, all out physical activity with short recovery periods. (Example: sprint for 1 minute, walk for 30 seconds). HIIT workouts are versatile and can be done almost anywhere.
This HIIT workout routine includes 3 different rounds of bodyweight exercises - no equipment needed! Remember to keep your quick bursts intense and keep moving during the rest periods (walking, deep breathing, etc).
