Calorie Burner-HIIT Workout

Have you heard of H.I.I.T. Workouts? H.I.I.T. stands for High Intensity Interval Training. This style of training has many perks to it. It's quick, efficient, convenient, flexible, and burns calories!

This style of training typically consists of short all out bursts of exercise, followed by either a shorter or longer rest period. During those all out bursts, you can push yourself to your own individual max-level. This style is awesome because any fitness level can do it, since you are pushing yourself to your own level. This is very timely, so you can get this completed in about 20-30 minutes! Depending on how fast you move!

Here's a HIIT Workout that you can try out!

Feel free to take extra rest periods as you need them. You can also adjust the number of rounds that you complete. If 4 rounds of each seems like to many, try to get through at lest 2-3 of each, and work your way up.

H.I.I.T. Workouts have been proven to:
-Decrease Risk for Heart Disease
-Increase VO2 Max (aerobic capacity)
-Increase Fat Burn (lypolisis)
-Increase Insulin Uptake 
-Improve Metabolic Health

It's worth trying it out! :)
