HIIT Your Butt Workout
High intensity interval training or HIIT has grown in popularity over the past decade. The premise behind HIIT is that alternating between bursts of high-intensity exercise and short rest periods can be more effective in burning fat and calories than steady-state cardio. Recent research suggests that HIIT can boost your metabolism so you continue to burn calories at an elevated rate for up to 24 hours after your workout. As a result, it’s been used in weight loss plans with quick and effective results.
