4 FUN HIIT WORKOUTS TO GET YOU THROUGH THE MONTH

Short on time and looking to maximise your workout? HIIT, or High Intensity Interval Training might be the answer. HIIT is a training method in which you focuses your energy on quick, intense exercise routine followed by active, short resting periods. HIIT workouts last just 30-minutes or even less.

This type of intense training keeps up your heart rate and burns more fat in less time. HIIT improves your metabolism, increasing the body’s tendency to create and use energy, burning fat more efficiently.

What more, you don’t need to worry about fancy equipment and a strict timetable at the gym. HIIT can be done at the comfort of your home. However, what is important is your determination, to achieve a better version of yourself. 

Keep in mind that when you start HIIT routine, the biggest challenge you will face is physical tiredness. Don’t give in to that as it tends to fade away with time. Not giving up should be your main mantra and focusing on the end result is all that matters.
