HIIT workouts (high-intensity interval training) has the fitness industry buzzing because of its potential to torch maximum calories in a minimum amount of time. The idea is that you do short periods of all-out work followed by short periods of active rest to make the body work harder than it does during steady-state cardio.
Now that the holidays have past, you’re probably itching to get back into the grind of a workout regimen. HIIT is a great way to supplement a strength program, as it breaks up monotony and ramps up your metabolism. (Check out seven more scientifically proven benefits of HIIT training.)
