April Workout: High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
By Bill Daniels, Elite Personal Trainer
Few workouts are as challenging as High Intensity Interval Training, and fewer yet yield the benefits that HIIT does. Much more effective than a steady cardio session, the short-but-intense activity of a HIIT workout boosts aerobic and anaerobic endurance, ignites your metabolism, and gives you a monstrous calorie burn, all while maintaining or even increasing muscle mass. This HIIT routine will make your next workout anything but ordinary.
