New HIIT Cardio Workouts

Posted on: November 18, 2011

Hey friends!

I hope you enjoyed some of my Gluten Free Holiday ideas! If you didn’t get a chance to see them, check them out here.  I recently had a request to post some more HIIT cardio workouts so here it is!

Interval training, or HIIT, can boost metabolism, burn off unwanted fat, as well as help you start reaching your fitness goals.  Interval training mixes high bursts of exercise with moderate intensity recovery periods.  The work outs are tough, but it is the quickest way to get in shape, burn fat, and increase your aerobic capability.  Not only are you burning a high amount of calories during your workout, but you will continue burning calories after you finish exercising.  The best part about HIIT is that it doesn’t take up too much time.  Who doesnt want to exercise for less time, and burn more calories?! I do!  I hate working out at the gym for an hour and never seeing results.

For those of you out there who love the treadmill, but aren’t seeing results after a 45 min run, give these HIIT workouts a shot!

I’m off to another long day of rehearsals! It’s going to be a good show ladies and gents!

  • Cross Training As A Dancer Part 2: Cardio |

    […] So we covered Crossfit in my last post and today let’s discuss cardio. Dancers spend a lot of time in the studio and you may think we are burning calories like crazy. Yes we are but its more of an anaerobic workout than aerobic and it’s the same affect as running for an hour. As a dancer I hate running. It hurts my joints and I get super bored, but I know dancers who love it. If you are a runner I suggest keeping it to 30-45 min sessions a couple times a week with some intervals to boost your metabolism. I’m not a certified trainer so take my advice as you like it, but this has worked me! I also love intervals on the elliptical! Saves my joints and I find I can get a good aerobic workout with intervals, resistance, and incline. Some awesome workout ideas on a previous post of mine about cardio ideas! […]
