Kohl’s wants to show all of us the many ways living a healthy life can feel good, look good and be easy and fun. I am here to spread the word and get you moving toward a healthier you. #MakeYourMove by trying out my HIIT workout and getting those legs strong and sexy for the swimsuit season. Cause it is all about making your move to a more fit and healthy you

What is HIIT Workout?

HIIT stands for High-Intensity Interval Training. HIIT workouts involve alternating between high-intensity intervals, with low-intensity exercises or complete rest periods. This type of workout is beneficial because you get more results in a shorter amount of time than other types of workouts. The HIIT Workout Leg Blaster will strengthen, lengthen and help you with mobility.

HIIT is an All-Over Body Workout

These exercises increase your metabolism meaning you burn more calories, lose more fat, and improve your cardiovascular fitness level in a short period. HIIT trains and conditions both your anaerobic and aerobic energy systems ensuring an all-over body workout both cardiovascular and muscular. 

To get the benefits HIIT, you need to push yourself past the upper end of your aerobic zone and allow your body to replenish your anaerobic energy system during the recovery intervals. That means you work hard (harder than you want), but it is for a short burst of time. You get a few minutes to recover, letting your heart rate drop a bit, and then you repeat. Remember your intervals involve maximum effort, not simply a higher heart rate.

Have a Base Fitness Level Before Starting a HIIT Program

Before starting any HIIT program, you should be able to exercise for at least 20-30 minutes at 70-85% of your estimated maximum heart rate, without exhausting yourself or having problems. Because HIIT is physically demanding, it’s important to gradually build up your training program so that you don’t overdo it. 

I offer a few variations of certain exercises based on where you are in your fitness level. If you are new to this, and you need more than 2 minutes of rest in between sets, by all means, take more, but don’t wait too long (no more than 4 minutes) because the working sets will be harder on you the lower you let your heart rate drop.

You need a strong core to help you throughout your daily life and with your other workouts.

A strong core helps with balance which is essential to proper form and gaining strength.
