High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a fantastic way to get a full body workout, targeting a variety of muscle groups while burning large amounts of energy. HIIT workouts when completed correctly can give the same effects as long distance endurance training over a much shorter period of time.

An effective HIIT workout involves raising your heart rate (HR) to 80 – 95% of your max HR during periods of high intensity exercise, followed by periods of rest or lower intensity exercise. Raising and lowering your HR through HIIT can decrease your resting HR and make your heart more efficient when working close to your maximum.

One of the most famous video creators on the internet is Joe Wicks and he has a variety of HIIT workouts available for free on YouTube. See some of his videos below and try one based on your experience of HIIT and your current fitness levels.

If you want to try something different, the Nike Training Club app has a variety of different workouts which you can browse and filer by muscle groups, length, qorkout type and more.
