Aerobics? What a terribly boring way to get in shape and lose weight. Ride a bike, run, swim for a whole half-hour or more and you’ll be breathing hard, sweating and oh so bored. Enter HIIT.
High intensity interval training (HIIT) is an attractive option when it comes to building cardiovascular endurance and burning fat because it promises to deliver the same results as that half-hour bore in only a fraction of the time.
HIIT was introduced as a no frills way to burn calories, lose weight and build a strong cardiovascular base. Since the idea first hit the mainstream, regardless of fitness goal, HIIT has been the answer.
