It’s Day 8 of the #25DaysofMFit! Congratulations on making it through the first week of the workout challenge! I think it is about time I hit you with some more cardio. So, today we are doing a 12-minute HIIT workout.
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) was made for the #25DaysofMFit workout challenge. HIIT packs a lot of fast movement into a short time frame. That is exactly what we have to do in our #25DaysofMFit workouts, so you can expect to see more HIIT routines over the next 17 days!
There are so many benefits to HIIT including the fact that it scorches major calories. This video, although only 12-minutes will help you burn more calories than you would typically burn on a 60-minute walk. But, of course you only get out of this workout what you put into it. So you have to work hard to burn those calories!
While the workout below involves some low impact movements, there are a few jumping exercises in the HIIT routine. If you are looking for a knee-friendly workout, click HERE for a 9-minute no jump HIIT.
