If there is a magic way to work out, this is it. It's adaptable to all levels, exceptionally useful for losing weight, boosting performance and gaining strength. And takes less time. The concept of HIIT, or High Intensity Interval Training is simple. Switch back and forth between explosive bursts of increased intensity and active rest. Athletes have used it for years to improve endurance. Bodybuilders use it almost exclusively during a cutting phase before competition. You can use it to just plain look good in your skinny jeans in less time.
