10 Minute HIIT Workout

Do you want to burn fat without spending hours working out? If you want to break up your day if you're working from home or maybe you can grab a spare 10 minutes while the kids are playing our short HIIT workout is for you!

What is HIIT?

HIIT is when you do repeated bursts of short, intense exercise putting maximum effort in then having short periods of recovery. HIIT tests the body’s ability to recover and will push your cardiovascular system to the max.  You only need to do  anything up to 30 minutes of this type of exercise so it’s perfect for those stuck for time. 

The Benefits

  • It’s a great workout to burn plenty of calories in the shortest amount of time.
  • It’s good for any fitness ability, from advanced fitness lovers to complete beginners, because the level of exertion is directly proportional to your own fitness level. In other words, the fitter you become the more you’ll be able to push yourself harder and still reap the rewards of a HIIT workout.
  • It’s not just fitness that HIIT benefits, many studies show that this type of training can reduce blood pressure too!

The ‘Afterburn’ Effect

Not only do you burn calories during the workout but the intense excursion you’re body goes through will really push your body’s repair system into overdrive. This is called the ‘afterburn’ effect. This means that it will still carry on burning calories at an accelerated rate even after you have stopped exercise. However, you must be prepared to push yourself to the maximum on those short bursts to make it truly effective!
