25-Minute Heart-Pumping, High-Impact HIIT Treadmill Workout for Women
As women, we don’t have much time to fit exercise into our schedule and need to pack in the biggest punch. HIIT workouts are a great way to get in some miles while pushing yourself to the limits. They’re also a great way to switch up your distance training and focus on speed-building to hit your next PR!
What is a HIIT workout?
High. Intensity. Interval. Training is exactly what HIIT stands for, and these workouts consist of repeated sections of high-intensity effort, like sprints, followed by rest and recovery periods.
What are the benefits of HIIT workouts?
Higher calorie burn in a shorter period of time
Reduction of heart rate, blood sugar, and blood pressure
Improves aerobic performance
Higher metabolic rate post-HIIT training
Does HIIT training burn more fat?
Some studies have shown that HIIT training is more efficient at burning fat, but most studies show that moderate workouts will also result in the same levels of fat burning.
When are HIIT workouts best?
We love HIIT for times when we only have a short amount of time in our day for a workout to burn a higher number of calories, get great cardio in, and feel energized and not fatigued post-workout.
How can I fuel for my HIIT workout?
