Quick Killer Hitt Burner

HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time. “A high-intensity workout increases the body’s need for oxygen during the effort and creates an oxygen shortage, causing your body to ask for more oxygen during recovery,” says Eric Salvador, NASM, NSCA, head instructor at The Fhitting Room in New York City. “This afterburn effect is referred to as Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC) and is the reason why intense exercise will help burn more fat and calories than regular aerobic and steady-state workouts.”

This is my favourite quick hits session to start my day once in a while for a change from a simple run. Hope you enjoy (as much as possible.)

  1. How many burpees can you do in a minute
  2. How many tuck jumps can you do in a minute
  3. How many push ups can you do in a minute
  4. How long can you hold a plank
  5. How fast can you run a mile
  6. Recovery walk for 5min

Then repeat as many times as you have time for. With this i think 3 is the magic number.

I have to admit i  find combining the two in this work out really pushes me, leading me feeling energised and buzzing with endorphins.
