HIIT Indoor Workout
What is HIIT indoor workout and its benefits?
HIIT or high-intensity interval training is a mode of workout involving cardio and weights (whether it’s bodyweight or using kettlebells or dumbbells) in an alternation pattern, a quick rest in between for recovery. It’s a high-paced active workout routine.
HIIT is known to be an effective way to lose weight and boost overall health. It jumpstarts your metabolism to increase fat loss.
But HIIT is not for everyone, as it requires high-intensity intervals. It is best to consult a doctor or a professional if you are a beginner trying a new workout routine and are not active and consistent with training.
It’s good to choose and pair certain cardio workouts and lighter weights if you want to start slowly and surely with your HIIT and increase the intensity as you go. You can start doing this once a week to practice your endurance.
What do you target doing a HIIT indoor workout?
It depends on the workout you choose. For example, pairing cardio and legs with your type of interval, you’ll target endurance, cardio, and the muscle and fat in your leg, causing it to work, sweat, tear, and build lean muscle. You get to choose what area you want to work in, but overall, cardio helps and moves your whole body to burn excess fat.
What do you need for a HIIT workout?
It’s good to have an exercise mat prepared to support your body. For weights (it’s optional if you want to use kettlebells/dumbbells or your body weight), it’s up to you. Prepare a water bottle on the side to keep you hydrated.
