HIIT-training has been extremely popular during the last couple of years, it has exploded at the market and there are some reasons for that. It might be the perfect workout form for you and I will give you 4 reasons to you about why a HIIT plan could be a great choice for you.
1. Time saving – Done in no time
If you are doing a HIIT session, you can save time for sure. A HIIT workout doesn’t need to be more than 15-30 minutes and you will be burning fat and increase your health. HIIT can be done in several different ways but one way is to work in cycles of 1 minutes with one intense strength or cardio exercise followed by recovery periods which can be rest or low-intensity activity. You can split it in different kind of ways regarding on what you prefer, three example is: 1. 40 sec of work – 20 sec of rest, 2. 30 sec of work and 30 sec of rest or 3. 20 sec of work and 40 sec of rest. Repeat this for 15-30 minutes and you will get a great workout. If you are hiit beginner, start with a longer rest and when you have done it for a while, you can short down your rest and increase the work time. If you are doing it 4-5 times a week you can also change between the different splitting to make it changing and funnier.
2. Flexibility – anywhere and everywhere
Are you having a hard time finding a gym or is the closest gym far from where you live? Then, the perfect choice for you is intensity training, you can do it wherever you are. If you are at the beach, in a park, at home, at a hotel room and have 15-30 minutes that you don’t now what to do. I will encourage you to do some high interval workouts and the best part is that you only need yourself, your bodyweight and a watch or timer. Because, equipment isn’t necessary do a great HIIT workout.
3. Increases metabolism – Fat burning even after you have finished
This type of workout will increase your metabolism which means that you will burn fat even after you are done with your HIIT workout.

You will feel great and be happier, increase your heart rate during 15-30 minutes some days every week is good for your body and overall health.
