Trainer’s Tip of the Day #3: Give HIIT a Shot

HIIT

Tip #3:  Try HIIT (high intensity interval training)

I’m not necessarily recommending that you kill yourself every day with Shaun T. and his Insanity workouts.  Those definitely aren’t for everyone.  But try adding intervals to your runs or strength workouts a couple of times a week.  It could be just the jolt you need to get better results.

HIIT is really hot right now in the fitness world.  And it’s one trend I actually do recommend trying.  Why?  There’s positive research to back it up.  Alternating heartrate-elevating intervals with recovery intervals burns fat faster, and helps you keep burning fat even after your workout.  You can add intervals to most types of exercise to fit your taste.
