For the past five years, H.I.I.T has become exceedingly popular, and this year ranks 3 on American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) list of 2019 trends. H.I.I.T stands for High-Intensity Interval Training. At first glance, HIIT can seem a bit intimidating so we put together a few tips for H.I.I.T newcomers.
H.I.I.T is a form of interval training that alternates periods of exercise with less-intense recovery periods. H.I.I.T is based on being able to push yourself to a high intensity followed by rest so that you can repeat that intensity again. Not only is interval training a great way to torch calories quickly, but it also helps you to continue burning more calories after the workout than a regular cardio workout. The variety of movements also keeps many people challenged and engaged.
