HIIT It With Me!

HIIT It With Me!

Every Tuesday and Thursday, after work. I make my way back to Harlem. Where I perform a really good  HIIT workout routine. HIIT stands for High-Intensity Interval Training. It's a training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short recovery periods. 

HIIT increases your metabolism by combing high intensity with interval training results in EOPC (Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC), which speeds your metabolic rate and translates into a metabolism boost for up to 48 hours after a complete HIIT routine, This means you’ll still be burning fat even after you’ve left the gym.

HIIT is quick and convenient and can be done ANYWHERE at any time, either at home, in a hotel room, in a park, at the gym etc. All you need is 15-30 minutes and there is not equipment necessary.
