How are HIIT cardio workouts more effective than a steady state cardio? Most gym trainers in India are not aware of this concept.

HIIT or high-intensity interval training is a training technique in which you give your one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercises, followed by short recovery periods. This type of training keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time. A high intensity workout increases the body's need for oxygen during the effort and creates an oxygen shortage, causing your body to ask for more oxygen during recovery. This afterburn effect is referred to as excess post exercise oxygen consumption and is the reason why intense exercise will help burn more fat and calories than regular aerobic and steady-state workouts.

An HIIT training gives you a metabolism boost upto 2 days making you lose fat during resting time which a steady cardio will be unable to provide.

One of the major advantage of HIIT over steady cardio is that it takes less time and burn calories. In todays world people are unable to go to gym due to time shortage. In this case, HIIT is for you.

The beauty of HIIT is it can be done anywhere, anytime. You don't need a big place, a small is enough. Just perform your set of exercises taking max 30sec rest in between and keep your heart rate up.

HIIT is very intense and takes a lot from your body. So make a plan and don't go too harsh on body, in long run, you may do more damage than good.

Stay healthy. Stay safe
