If You Questioned HIIT's Effectiveness, These Before-and-Afters Will Convince You Otherwise
If you haven't heard of HIIT before, then you're missing out on some intense sweat at the gym and even at home. HIIT stands for high-intensity interval training, and it has taken the fitness world by storm. It's not only super time-efficient, but it's also very calorie expensive since it gets your heart rate up instantaneously. Pratik Patel, New York Giants director of performance nutrition and assistant strength and conditioning coach, told POPSUGAR that HIIT should be in your repertoire if you're looking to burn more calories.
The best part is you can customize the HIIT session however you like. Whether you want to include dumbbells or only focus on bodyweight, the point is you're in control. The only goal is to make it as challenging as possible. Cardio doesn't have to be the treadmill or StairMaster. It can be different and fun.
