High-intensity interval training, also called high-intensity intermittent exercise or sprint interval training, is a form of interval training, a cardiovascular exercise strategy alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less intense recovery periods, until too exhausted to continue
HIIT focuses on short bursts of exercise in which the participants exert all of their effort followed by short rest periods.
The idea is that giving your all for short periods of time is more effective and most importantly efficient than an hour spent alternating between a lazy jog and slow walk.
What's more, this form of intensive workout is said to be key when it comes to focusing on burning fat and increasing your metabolism.
Its emphasis on exercises relying on the body rather than equipment means that it is favoured by those with a busy lifestyle which leaves little time for the gym.
Perhaps the most common excuse for avoiding exercise is a lack of time and money.
However, the rise of home-based intensive training means that these excuses no longer shape up.
Levels can be adjusted for everyone from absolute beginner to fitness fanatic - all that matters is that you are giving 100% of whatever energy level you have.
