I’m someone who recently got into working out regularly and that also started only when I realized that i have put on a lot of weight and my old cloths don’t fit me anymore. I guess your cloths are your best friends when it comes to weight increase or weight loss.
So, for the past 3-4 months, I have been doing something or the other as a physical exercise. I started by spending an hour in the gym every day, but then my schedule at work changed and so I started running a few kilometers every day. Recently my husband told me about the HIIT workout, so I started googling to get more information about the entire workout.
HIIT is basically interval training, a kind of cardiovascular exercise which involves short intense aerobic exercise with less intense intervals. These workouts can get your heart pumping and also increases metabolism because of ‘afterburn’. ‘After burn’ is a phenomenon which is all to do with oxygen. When we do a regular workout, our body uses oxygen regularly but when you push your level of workout to a very high intensity, your body uses more oxygen, which needs to be restored later. This oxygen restoration process burns calories even after the workout is over, which increases your metabolism.
Since the time I have stared theses session, I feel lighter and get the same results which I would get by going to the gym 5 times during the week by just doing three 20 minutes sessions in a week.
It’s been only 2 weeks but I feel good. The good thing about these sessions is that it’s only 20 to 25 minutes long and you don’t have to go out of the safety and comfort of your home.
Below is the YouTube link that I go by every day for these sessions. Hope it helps all of you who don’t have much time but are looking to either losing weight or just to feel healthy.
