You can call this workout as a beast. This is a challenging workout routine, but it is also exciting. The interval of these kind of exercise is also tough but you can relax by thinking that you just need to do each exercise only once.
What is HIIT Workout?
HIIT is a kind of training that includes intervals from low to moderate and then it is also alternated with the high intensity intervals. You can consider running or squatting to be a kind of HIIT. It is way better and effective than the normal cardio workouts. The amount of intensity you put in it, is a lot higher and you can include both aerobic and anaerobic tenacity while you burn fat than ever before.
A research has found that HIIT burns the adipose tissue much more effectively than other low intensity workout. At least 50% more efficiently it burns out the fat. Moreover it speeds up metabolism that burns out more calories all day long.
Lets have a look at the most effective HIIT cardio workouts:
1. Push Ups:
While you do a push up, it works on the multiple muscle of your body. Push up will work on your arm, core, chest, legs and hips. When you try to get them closer to your body, your triceps will get a hard workout.
2. Fit Dips:
You must remember that a dip is a push exercise, that mainly works on the chest, front shoulder or your triceps. Therefore, combining dips with pulling exercise is a good idea.
