HIIT, or High Intensity Interval Training, is a workout technique that involves alternating short bursts of intense exercise with brief periods of rest or active recovery. It can be applied to various types of physical activities such as running, cycling, swimming, or bodyweight exercises. The main idea behind HIIT is to push your body to its maximum effort during the intense intervals and then allow it to recover before repeating the cycle. HIIT workouts are usually shorter in duration but can deliver significant health benefits when performed consistently and properly.

This type of training is known for its effectiveness in:

Improving cardiovascular health

Lowering blood pressure

Stimulating metabolism

Affecting endothelial function
