HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is a method of exercise incorporating bouts of high-intensity exercise with medium-intensity recovery periods. It’s a great way to get in a quick, yet effective workout. And what Mom doesn’t appreciate getting the most bang for her buck? Studies show that these short, intense workouts improve our ability to burn fat and increase our metabolism. So try this HIIT workout on for size:
