For pure fat loss and conditioning one of the most effective workouts is high intensity interval training (HIIT). And it’s pretty much exactly as it sounds. You ratchet up the intensity in short bursts, to ramp up your calorie burn.
High Intensity Interval Training
If you’ve never tried a HIIT workout, the concept is pretty simple. Instead of a constant, steady pace HIIT utilizes short periods of high intensity followed by a short rest period.
Not only is interval training an efficient use of your workout time, but it has also shown an increased calorie burn compared to normal workouts.
HIIT basic concept:
40 seconds of high intensity exercise
20 seconds of rest
You would repeat this pattern for five to ten sets.
