People either love HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) workouts or run away from it. It is shocking as to why people, especially women, do not opt for it more. It is probably because they are terrified of the long and non-stop exercising. Well, that is the whole point of HIIT. You challenge your body to move past all your inhibitions and get fit.

HIIT includes rigorous exercise for a certain period followed by a rest period and then getting back to the rigorous training. It works because it increases the metabolism rate and induces fat loss. The good thing about it is it can be customized as far as the workout period is concerned. As long as you give your 100 per cent, a 30 minutes workout, 5 days a week is required to lose weight.

Let us get started with a HIIT workout. Before that there are some rules you need to know:

1. Each exercise needs to be done for 1 minute.

2. A cycle comprises of every exercise done once. You must do 3 such cycles.

3. Each cycle must follow a specific order of the exercises and you are free to choose that order.

4. The structure followed once must be followed in every cycle.

5. You must do each exercise without stopping.

6. You are permitted to take a 30-second break after you do 2 exercises without stopping.
