High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is no joke. Earlier this year I made a post about what qualifies a workout to be HIIT. Make no mistake, today’s apartment-friendly HIIT workout is a true HIIT routine.
This workout follows the pattern of 40 seconds on, 10 seconds off, 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off for 8-minutes. I designed this workout structure for ultimate fat burn. Trust me, it works.
We will do a moderately challenging exercise for the first 40 seconds followed by an extremely intense cardio movement for the 20 second interval. The 10 seconds of rest in between each working interval will not be enough for you to catch your breath completely, but they will help push you through to the end of the workout.
In this workout I talk about Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) and how they are my favorite supplement to take when I do workouts like this. BCAAs help with recovery and muscle building. It is beneficial to take them when you doing an intense cardio workout like this one. If you want more information about BCAAs and how to incorporate them into your daily routine, check out this article by MuscleZone.
