We\’re inching toward month 10 of quarantine, and while some gyms have re-opened around the country, they\’re at reduced capacity in most cases—or not open at all, depending on where you live. If you\’re still wary of the gym or don\’t want to deal with limited capacity, home workouts are often free and easy.
HIIT stands for High-Intensity Interval Training, which essentially means you give your workout 100% effort with high-intensity cardio moves, then have a brief low-impact break before you do it all again. The idea is that these bursts of cardio keep your heart rate elevated through the entire workout, thus leading to maximum calorie burn in a short period of time.
If you\’re an Amazon Prime member, these HIIT workouts come free as part of your membership. You can switch things up, too, so your body doesn\’t get used to repeating the same few workouts.
