Hit the Track Again: HIIT Cardio Workout
Lets face it, cardio is not the highlight of most peoples workout routines. Especially when your cardio consists of running at X speed for X amount of time around a track or on a treadmill. This often leads to incomplete cardio sessions for people who are just starting to get into cardio again.
 
When it comes to cardio, quality is key, if you want to get cut High-intensity interval training(HIIT) is what you are looking for. With a HIIT workout you can kiss your old boring cardio sessions good bye, and pick up something that will challenge you in a new way.
 

What is HIIT?

 
HIIT is a style of training that involves various intensitys and speeds at different times within your workout. This causes your body to constantly adjust to the workout, not getting to comfortable with one intensity. Think about it as the way some people do set while weight lifting, they may do 5 sets of a particular workout and increase in weight every set.

Things You Can HIIT

HIIT Your Block

Running around town is a perfect way to get up and get active with little effort of having to go to the gym or track.
 

HIIT Your Bike

Cardio doesn't have to consist of only running, bust out that old bike and HIIT it!
 

HIIT The Gym

This is the perfect option for those day that mother nature holds you back from outside. Take a trip over to the gym, hop on a treadmill, stairs, elliptical, and HIIT it!
 

HIIT The Deck

The pool is a great way to bust out some high intensity workouts while switching up from the basic running cardio.
