Planning ahead

Things to know before you get started.
5 Ways to Prepare for HIIT
  1. 1. Consult a trainer before starting

    Since HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts also involve more strenuous exercises than regular workouts, it is also be best to consult with your physician.

  2. 2. Use it as a supplemental workout method

    HIIT is ideally done between long-term workout programs whenever progress stalls or comes to a halt.

  3. 3. Mind your safety

    While pushing yourself is often advised when working out, it is a good idea to err on the side of caution as opposed to taking undue risks while doing HIIT.

  4. 4. Listen to your body

    While working out, if your body tells you that it cannot take any more and that you should stop, it is a good idea to do so.

  5. 5. Take your time

    The short exercises might lull you into thinking that your body is taking less damage. Take the extra time that you save from short HIIT workouts to rest to give your body ample time to recover.
