High-intensity interval training (HIIT workouts) 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. There are absolutely no excuses for not whipping yourself into shape.
To capitalize on the benefits of HIIT workouts, we reached out to George “Hit” Richards, celebrity fitness trainer and calisthenics expert; Pete Bommarito, C.S.C.S., U.S.A.W., a certified MAT Jumpstart Specialist and owner of Bommarito Performance Systems; and James Banks, a certified personal trainer at Performix House West Hollywood for a variety of interval workouts designed to burn fat, build muscle, and enhance sports performance. Get in the best shape of your life (and look like it, too) with these 15 fat-blasting HIIT workouts.
