HIIT Workouts for your Living Room (or garden!)

There are so many great benefits of HIIT training.

- HIIT training will help you drop body fat without loosing muscle mass

- HIIT training takes less time - In fact I just read that 27 minutes of HIIT 3x per week produces the same anaerobic (muscle building) and aerobic (cardiovascular) improvements as 5 steady state cardio sessions (i.e jogging) a week

- You still be in the burn fat zone 24-48 hours after your workout, it also gives your metabolism a boost

- HIIT training makes you breathe harder, and burns more fat, than steady-state cardio (jogging, swimming)
