Looking to fend off that pesky winter weight without spending countless hours on the treadmill? It’s holiday season, meaning more pumpkin pie and less ambition to be active outside. Make up for that extra scoop of mashed potatoes and give High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) a shot. The premise is to keep the heart rate elevated through quick bouts of exercise followed by short periods of rest. The result is increased metabolism, muscular endurance, and heart health. HIIT is a super efficient way to burn calories and stay conditioned in almost any environment.
Here’s a quick workout that requires no equipment and minimal space. Perform each exercise for 20 seconds back to back with 10 seconds rest between. Take 30 seconds before moving on to the next round. Repeat all 3 rounds 2-3 times. Give it a try!
-Split Squat Jumps
-Side Plank Hip Dips (20 sec each side)
