If you haven't hear of HIIT workouts before, or you aren't quite sure what they are, then keep reading! HIIT stands for high intensity interval training. So you perform high intensity exercises, with short recovery periods. I really like pushing myself whilst working out. I only feel like I have had a successful gym session when I leave and I am soaked in sweat, so this type of training is my favourite!
HIIT exercises are so much more effective than normal cardio due to the high intesnsity, and the fact you are able to increase both your aerobic and anaerobic endurance whilst fat burning and maintaning muscle. It also helps increase your metabolism.
Below is a HIIT workout you can try, you do not need any gym machines, and you can do it with or without the resistance band and the free weights.
