High-intensity interval training, or HIIT, is one of the most efficient workouts out there. HIIT can be defined as a “cardiovascular exercise strategy alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less intense recovery periods, until too exhausted to continue.” In short, it’s high-intensity activity interrupted by brief periods of rest, hence the name high-intensity interval training.
A fan of this kind of exercise is Camille Dg, the Canadian travel, sports, and fashion influencer. Camille swears by this type of workout because “it delivers optimum result in a minimum amount of time.” For people who cannot dedicate more than an hour a day to physical fitness, HIIT offers a solution to the time-crunch problem. With HIIT, people can burn fat and gain strength without spending multiple hours in the gym.
But what does a HIIT routine look like? The beauty of this type of workout is that it can incorporate a diverse range of workouts. Watch the video featuring Camille to see an example of how she executes a workout. In reality, you can use any type of cardio workout, whether it’s running, rowing, or jumping rope, to accomplish high intensity interval training.
HIIT gets the quick, positive results you’re looking for!”
There’s no denying that HIIT workouts have become more and more popular in recent years. A frequent question is whether science backs up its benefits. Most physical therapists confirm that HIIT is a great workout and it also manages to get your endorphins flowing.
HIIT workouts are not for everyone, however. According to WebMD, “This workout places big demands on your heart, so you should check in with your doctor see if HIIT is OK for you. You should also start slowly, doing a few intervals for a short period of time.” In addition, people who suffer from joint or muscle problems should also seek their doctor’s advice first. “You may not be able to do HIIT if you have joint or muscle problems, like arthritis. Ask your doctor first,” WebMD says.
Beyond those concerns, HIIT is a great form of exercise that will get noticeable results. See some more of Camille’s moves in this Hotel Room Exercise Routine video and make sure to watch her in the video below…
