Why HIIT works so good


07-08-2016 -


Super-efficient HIIT is the ideal workout for a busy schedule. A 12-minute fat-blasting cardio workout that burns more calories than a half hour on the treadmill!

Burn More Fat:

You burn more fat and calories in the 24 hours after a HIIT workout than you do after a run around the lake.

Healthier Heart:

An intense HIIT workout pushes you in the anaerobic zone (that lovely place where you can’t breathe and you feel like your heart is trying to jump out of your chest). Working out in this zone improves your stamina rapidly.

No Equipment Necessary:

No equipment needed just your own bodyweight. Plyometric exercises like High knees, jumping lunges or burpees will get your heart rate up fast. In fact some equipment can make HIIT less effective because it focuses more on strength than on your heart rate.

Lose Weight, Not Muscle:

HIIT workouts allow dieters to preserve their hard-earned muscles while ensuring most of the weight lost comes from fat stores. Win/win!

Increase Metabolism:

HIIT workouts stimulate production of your human growth hormone (HGH) by up to 450 percent during the 24 hours after you finish your workout. This is great news since HGH is not only responsible for increased caloric burn but also slows down the aging process, making you younger both inside and out!

Do It Anywhere:

You can do it here or there, you can do it anywhere! Since it’s such a simple concept—go at maximum effort for a short period of time followed by a recovery period and repeat—you can adapt it to whatever time and space constraints you have.


This is not a workout you can do while reading a magazine or chatting with your friend. Because it’s so short and intense, you will be working hard the whole time. You may be in pain, you may be sucking wind, but you definitely won’t be bored!
