Let’s HIIT it hard today.
I love HIIT workouts! There’s no better way to maximize your time and really amplify your results.
HIIT stands for “High Intensity Interval Training”.
When we think of “regular” interval training, it will typically follow a 2:1 ratio – regular intensity:high intensity.
For example you do an exercise at regular intensity for 2 minutes followed by a 1-minute bout at near-maximum effort.
When HIIT was first introduced to the fitness world, it changed the game completely.
It took this “regular” formula and decided to stand it on its head.
In HIIT workouts your near-maximum intensity bout is twice as long as your “normal” bout.
It becomes 2:1 high intensity:regular intensity. (For more info about HIIT training click here)
We’re following this formula today to bring you a killer at-home interval shredder.
All you need is a little space, probably a towel of some sorts (it’s about to go down), a timer (kitchen timer or on your phone) and the killer desire to melt some serious calories. Let’s do it!
