What is not to love about high intensity interval training (HIIT)? HIIT workouts are generally short in length, produces the much sought-after "afterburn effect", while at the same time increasing your aerobic fitness. Even better is that there are so many different individual exercises that work well with HIIT, that the workout possibilities are almost endless.

A couple things to keep in mind:
Always warm up first.
Only perform HIIT after fully recovering from the last time you did a HIIT workout.
Go hard. To reap the benefits, you need to be giving your all.
