Almost everyone asks me why I love HIIT, as it’s pretty intense. And my answer comes instantly: for that and not only that.
As I am a mom, have a family life and a full time job, time is really important and most of the time not enough for all the things I’d like to do within 24h. So I turned to HIIT because working out like this is really efficient. My workouts vary between 20 – 35 minutes per day, so it’s really easy to squeeze it in my daily schedule. Because it’s so short, you will be working hard the whole time.
Then it burns more fat. During and after the workout. It also trains the heart, as you have to push into the anaerobic zone. Best part is that you don’t even need equipment, because you are working with your own body weight; or if you need some equipment, it’s a couple of dumbbells, a kettlebell, a jump rope and a mat. Another positive is that you can do it anywhere.
The thing I love most about HIIT is that it increases the metabolism rate, and the aging process is slowed down. 😉
I guess, in my opinion, eating clean and HIIT is the key for living a happily and healthy long life.
