I tried to get in and out of the gym as fast as possible last night so I could be at Tuna’s in time to watch the Caps game.
That meant I didn’t have time to run a bunch of miles and still watch the puck drop, but I figured some HIIT would give me a good slash quick workout.
HIIT, or high intensity interval training, is a form of cardio with cycles of high intensity bursts and then low to moderate intensity recovery, i.e. a speed workout (source).
Check out THIS article from Shape to see some of HIIT’s benefits.
Here is the workout I created and did on the treadmill last night. It’s a sweaty one!
This reminded me of my track workout days in high school.
Hopefully the occasional HIIT workout will make me speedier!
What do you think of HIIT workouts? Have they made you faster?
