HIIT is a combination of 4 or more exercises performed with short rest periods between them for either a set number of repetitions or a prescribed amount of time. HIIT is structured in a way that enables you to keep performing the exercises with good technique and very short rest intervals.
HIIT is very time efficient which makes it a popular method of training. It is an excellent way to improve cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength and endurance in addition to loosing body fat.
HIIT will elevate your heart rate and keep it high through the entire session due to the short rest periods, large muscles being worked together and a combination of upper, lower and whole body exercises.
