Full Body HIIT (At home edition)
Full Body HIIT
This one is for all of the gym goers out there who are getting ready for summer and need to burn a little bit of fat. HIIT or High Intensity Interval Training is a great way to boost your metabolism and burn fat. When your heart rate gets to 70% of your maximum heart rate, your body begins to burn fat. This is why HIIT and other workouts like it are so important.
They can be hard on your joints but that's why we make the World's Best Turmeric Supplement (we may be biased but it's damn good). Turmeric will help dramatically reduce inflammation levels throughout the body and is well documented by groups like NIH and other governing bodies.
Back to the workout, you're going to repeat this small set only 4 times. The key here is to take your time and do every move correctly. In between each exercise, perform 30 seconds of mountain climbers or jump squats with 15 seconds of rest before and after.
