Let's face it, it’s difficult to put time aside for a workout and often people end up putting exercise on the back burner, with HIIT you can dramatically reduce the time of your workouts but still get the effects. These types of workouts are ideal for people with a busy schedule, squeeze one of these in your lunch break or in the morning to give yourself a quick boost for the day.
HIIT produces extreme results and trains your body to go beyond what it could do before. A study published by The Journal of Physiology found after 8 weeks of HIIT people doubled the amount of time they could ride a bike while keeping the same pace.
HIIT doesn’t limit you to specific exercises, it can be done with weights, body weight or cardio. You can choose exactly what you do in your workout based on how you're feeling at the time. Gone are the days of pushing yourself through exercises you don’t enjoy.
