High Intensive Interval Training (HIIT) workouts are one of the most effective method in losing weight, fast. HIIT requires you to give your 100% through quick, intense bursts of exercise followed by short, active recovery periods. This type of training gets your heart rate up, and burn more fats in a shorter time.

Instead of long aerobic workouts, consider short, intensive anaerobic HIIT workouts which may potentially help you shed that weight more effectively and fast.

A HIIT session typically starts with a:
1) Warm-up
2) Warm-up intervals
3) Short, maximum-intensity efforts
4) Moderate recovery intervals
5) Cool down intervals
6) Cool down


Introducing 7 basic HIIT exercises. They include:
1) Burpees
2) Mountain climbers
3) Jumping jacks
4) Lunges jumps
5) Planks
6) Squats
7) Sit throughs

Give yourself 1 minute, do as many repetitions as you can (without compromising of the correct form), rest for 1 minute, and continue the next set. Do 2 sets of each exercise and TADAAA, you’d have completed a 20 minute (7 exercises X 2 reps workout which is inclusive of rest).

The benefits of HIIT workouts include:
1) Increase of metabolism
2) Variation of activities (so you won’t get bored)
3) Quick and convenient (as it can be done almost anywhere, at any time)
4) No equipment is needed
5) Improvement of your VO2 max (body’s ability to use oxygen as energy)

If you’ve not tried, consider starting on HIIT workouts as part of your weight loss program!
