It looks like the sunshine has settled in UK for a little longer. With it comes good mood and some breaking news - 25 minutes 3-4 times a week  is all you need to get fit, loose weigth and keep it off - with HIIT which stands for High Intensity Interval Training. Read more to see why:




YOU WILL SEE THE RESULTS  IMMEDIATELY

This is so simple, you get out of your workout what you put in - high intensity physical activity mixed with low intensity intervals challenges your body to condition you at all levels - Endurance, Strength, Agility, Power, Explosiveness - you tick all of these within your 25 minutes. If this doesn't encourage you, your health is at risk.


IT BOOSTS METABOLISM FOR UP TO 48 HOURS AFTER TRAINING

This means you are burning calories at faster pace even when you don't exercise, that's an immediate effect of HIIT, so start now, and you will be sitting on a very firm ass in no time.

IT ONLY TAKES 25 MINUTES

Sure you can exercise for as long as your fitness level allows you but for those who are super busy or aren't exercise fans,  25 minutes sounds like a bearable time to sacrifice to get fitter. No excuses.

THERE ARE NO STRICT GUIDELINES TO FOLLOW

HIIT can be performed in many ways, the length of high and low intensity intervals can vary depending on your fitness or goals. The only rule is... give it ALL OUT during your high intensity intervals.

What's more, you choose which exercises to do, so you don't need to dread those burpees if you don't agree with them. There are  many exercises that target the same muscle groups, variety will make you stick to your workout plan. Do high knees instead or mountain climbers, or alternating lunges, or...

Below is an example of HIIT I do:

 10 x 45 seconds HIGH and  10 x 15 seconds LOW - 10 MINUTES TOTAL
