What is it??

HIIT is a form of interval training that involves short intervals of maximum intensity exercise separated by longer intervals of low to moderate intensity exercise.

HIIT increases the amount of calories you burn during your exercise session and afterward because it increases the length of time it takes your body to recover from each exercise session.

HIIT trains and conditions both your anaerobic and aerobic energy systems.
