    Details

    Many people initially look at the length of quick HIIT videos and think that it’s “not enough” — but if you’re pushing yourself properly, you’re going to feel it and you won’t necessarily need more (and keep in mind that more training is not always better). Additionally, we love these short workouts because you can pair them with one of our strength routines and build your own custom workout each day.



    High intensity interval training uses short intervals to challenge and push your limits in a short amount of time; you should feel like you can’t go any further once you reach the end of that active interval, which is just 20 short seconds, by the way (though most of us would argue that those 20 seconds usually feel anything but short). These bursts of all out exertion are ironically the fastest way to improve your cardiovascular endurance. What that means is that you can technically get more out of these intense but abrupt workouts than you can from a longer duration, steady-state cardio workout. HIIT, like strength training, is a great example of working smarter, not harder.
