What are HIIT workouts and what do they have to do with a Turbo Fire DVD, you ask? Well, you’ve come to the right article. Read on, and I’ll explain what HIIT and Turbo Fire are, and how they will make positive and lasting changes for your body and soul.
First of all, what does HIIT stand for?
HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training. It has quickly become a very popular method of working out due to its efficacy in burning fat or adipose tissue. In implementing HIIT in your training, you toggle low to moderate intervals with high intensity intervals/time periods.
HIIT can be applied to aerobic and/or weight training exercises. It has such a high level of effectiveness than your typical cardio because of the higher intensity. This enables you to increase your aerobic and anaerobic endurance while melting away more fat than ever before.
“In research, HIIT has been shown to burn adipose tissue more effectively than low-intensity exercise – up to 50% more efficiently.” It has also been shown to boost your metabolism which helps you burn more calories throughout the day. ( www.musclemedia.com )
