Burn Fat in Less Time with High Intensity Interval Training!

Burn Fat in Less Time with High Intensity Interval Training!

sprintingHIIT, (High intensity interval training) is a form of cardio training that involves cycles of high intensity bursts and low to moderate intensity recovery. This cardio workout is said to burn fat not only faster but more efficiently than that of a low intensity cardio workout such as jogging or going for a long run. This is because the higher intensity allows the body to burn fat faster in total than at lower intensity routines, although the ratio of fat to glycogen ratio is lower. Additionally, there’s also an ‘after burn’ effect known as EPOC (excess-post exercise oxygen consumption). This increases your metabolism and burns more calories for up to 24 hours after interval training.

Try adding some sprints to your workout!
