High intensity interval training (HIIT) is the best type of cardio to burn fat. When most people think of cardio, they think of long, boring jogs, or endless hours on the elliptical.With HIIT cardio training you alternate short, very high intensity intervals with longer, slower intervals to recover. This type of training has been used by athletes to improve performance, but it’s also been shown to benefit the average exerciser. HIIT training not only helps performance, it also improves the ability of the muscles to burn fat, by increasing your metabolism, and can be tailored for any level of fitness.
HIIT workouts are usually 30 minutes or less. Who can’t spare that?
