HIIT IT HARD

Who doesn’t want to get more for less? That’s the beauty of high-intensity interval training (HIIT), a proven training method that’s become a workout staple for fitness enthusiasts everywhere. Most HIIT workouts are a combination of short, all-out bursts of intensity followed by some much-needed catch-your-breath recovery periods. “A HIIT workout is typically done with interval bursts at 90% to 95% of max heart rate for no more than 60 seconds,” says Michele Olson, Ph.D., an exercise physiologist at Auburn University-Montgomery. The payoff: “You’ll get about the same fitness benefits in 10 minutes as you would jogging for a half-hour.”

One reason HIIT workouts are so popular is their surefire success. And a slimmer physique found that those who did HIIT workouts three times a week showed an 11% increase in aerobic training. Research also shows regular HIIT workouts can improve blood pressure, insulin sensitivity, and cholesterol profiles.
