HIIT workouts have been getting a lot of attention these days and for good reasons! HIIT stands for ‘high-intensity interval training’, and it’s all about cycling between intense bursts of exercise and short periods of active rest.
New research now suggests that HIIT workouts may be especially beneficial for those trying to burn fat -specifically that stubborn, subcutaneous and abdominal fat which sits just underneath our skin. These studies also suggest that HIIT may help to promote insulin sensitivity and even regulate appetite (Boutcher, 2011). Sweet, right?
