When most people think of cardio they think long jogs, hours on the stationary bike or boring elliptical sessions. Not anymore. HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is a type of workout that burns more fat in less time. HIIT cardio involves alternating high intensity exercise with low intensity exercise. Here are two examples of HIIT cardio that I enjoy doing.
Stairmaster 30 minute workout2 Minutes level 5-7 30 second sprint level 17-20 Repeat for 30 minutes
Treadmill or outside run 30 min workout2 Minutes fast pace walk 1 Minute light jog 30 Second sprint Repeat for 30 Minutes
Not only does HIIT cardio help you burn more fat during your workout but it also increases your metabolism and helps you burn more calories for up to 24 hours after.
