Being new to fitness doesn’t have to mean that high intensity interval training (AKA HIIT) isn’t for you.

Short bursts of high intensity workouts are a great way to burn off alot of calories in a short amount of time and can be more effective than a regular cardio workout for burning off stubborn belly fat.

How Does HIIT Work?

High Intensity Interval training is about pushing yourself and getting the heart rate going with short bursts of exercise with no rest then you rest and start again – complete as many reps as you can of each exercise (pushing yourself out of your comfort zones, the harder you push the more calories you will burn). When all the exercises in the routine have been completed you have a rest period of up to two minutes.

Step up the intensity as you go by adding weights or moving at a faster pace gradually building up the time till you reach a 30 minute workout.

Rest Period

During this time it is important that you keep moving but you need to regain your breath so you can go again when the times up – use this time to pace the room or if your fitness level is higher you could run on the spot. When the times up its time to repeat the routine again repeat this pattern as many times as you can manage.
