22 Oct Low Impact HIIT Cardio Workout
Over the past year, I have fallen in love with low impact cardio workouts. I used to do crazy HIIT routines every other day. And while I still do those crazy HIIT workouts occasionally, low impact cardio is my jam now. This kind of workout will help you burn body fat, get a good sweat on, and keep your joints safe. Just because it is labeled as “low impact” does not mean it is easy. I have perfected the art of creating a joint-friendly workout that is still incredibly challenging.
I personally switched to low impact workouts when I started to prioritize strength training in my workout routine. HIIT sessions left me feeling so tired that I felt I couldn’t lift as heavy as I was capable of lifting. I still love HIIT, and I post high intensity routines on the MFit Membership every week… but it is good to take a break from jumping and sprinting every once in a while.
