Why You Should Be Doing HIIT Workouts

HIIT workouts stand for “High Intensity Interval Training” and this week we are diving into why we think incorporating HIIT workouts into your weekly routine is a good idea. HIIT focuses on raising and resting your heart rate during short durations of exercise which helps strengthen your cardiovascular system. Incorporating light weights during a HIIT workout will also add strength training to your muscles which will give you a “best of both worlds” added benefit during exercise.


HIIT exercises are also available for all levels of fitness and can be done by anyone in either standing or seated positions.
