HITT workout

HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING:  (HIIT) has become a popular way to burn more fat. It's a training method that has been effective for many people. HIIT is considered to be much more effective than normal cardio because the intensity is higher and you are able to increase both your aerobic and anaerobic endurance while burning more fat than ever before.
"In research, HIIT has been shown to burn adipose tissue more effectively than low-intensity exercise - up to 50% more efficiently." It has also been shown to speed up your metabolism which helps you burn more calories throughout the day. (www.musclemedia.com)

OK now that I have explained what HITT workouts are here we go!

This type of exercise is meant o get the heart rate very night and then you take a break.

So are you still trapped inside your house due to snow or don't have time to make it to the gym. These exercises you need literally 3-4 feet of space thats it and they will KILL the calories. Do the above moves for 30-45 seconds and take a 45 second rest before starting over from the beginning. Complete 3 times. If you up for it you can do a second HITT interval shown below.

1. Mountain Climbers
2. Jack and kick front right -jack and kick front left
3. Log jumps (Act liked there is a log on the ground and youare jumping over it side ways)
4. High knees
