“I want to work out but I just don’t have the time to exercise.” Sounds familiar?
If so, you’re not alone – lack of time is the number one reason for skipping exercise but is it a real obstacle or an excuse? It’s not really a question of finding time, but making time for exercise. Also, you don’t need a lot of time to exercise effectively and you don’t necessarily need a gym.
If you’re short on time, high intensity interval training (HIIT) with short bouts of intensity and quick recovery periods is your best bet to get an effective workout that increases your VO2 max and helps build lean muscle mass.
Work out anywhere, anytime with these three quick HIIT workouts – and with a fitness watch, you can make sure you’re exercising enough and at the right intensity!
