The concept behind HIIT Training is very simple, exercise as hard as you can for a short period of time (i.e. a few Seconds/Minutes). Recover just long enough to get your breath back, then Repeat.
This process spikes your metabolism, burns fat, and builds muscle quickly. The best part of this form of training is you continue to reap the benefits even after the exercise has finished. Unlike those boring and prolonged treadmill sessions, HIIT training burns calories both during the workout, and after the workout, up to 24 hours after!
There are a variety of different forms of HIIT Training. Sprints are a particular favorite. Try this routine and sprint your way to a solid 6-pack!
