As you have been searching for workouts, you may have seen the acronym ‘HIIT’ and wondered what it stands for and what type of workout you will be doing. High-Intensity Interval Training, or HIIT, is a workout regimen lasting under 30 minutes that alternates between short periods of intense activity and short rest periods.
You may see it as quick bouts of ass-kicking work that make you sweat intensely. But there is real science behind this, with the goal to safely elevate the heart rate and increase muscular oxygen uptake to help stoke your metabolism and increase fat loss.
This 15 Minute HIIT Workout accomplishes all of this and more. We have designed this workout to run as a circuit to keep you moving from upper to lower and then back to upper body movements.
It can be used as a quick workout when you are short on time but are looking for maximum benefit, or you can tack this onto a resistance training workout to increase your conditioning goals.
