Daily Fit 07/24/2019: Should you try HIIT for weight loss?

HIIT for weight loss

Workout Tip Of The Day: Incorporate HIIT into your cardio routine to burn calories in less time, boost your heart health and other benefits.

What Is HIIT?

You’ve likely heard the buzz and banter surrounding this form of cardio, which has become famous in the fitness world. The acronym HIIT stands for high-intensity interval training, wherein you alternate between short bursts of intense cardio and less strenuous activity. A standard HIIT session might be one minute of sprints offset by two minutes of walking for five rounds, or bodyweight exercises like jumping jacks or burpees. You don’t need equipment either so you can perform this exercise just about anywhere.

The Benefits

HIIT is trending for good reason. It can save time for those of us with jam-packed schedules while still burning as many calories as an hour spent walking on the treadmill. The benefits of HIIT aren’t confined to cardio either, the intensity kicks your body into hyperdrive and you’ll continue to burn calories at a faster rate 24 hours post-workout. Bonus? HIIT also boosts your heart health and metabolism. [Shape]
