If your you want to burn fat a quick as possible, then make sure you are doing it as safe as possible! Warming Up is JUST as important as the HIIT workout itself, check out the Full Body HIIT Warm up, written by the guys at BodyFit.
Its true what they say about HIIT training, It’ll get your body burning fat like a furnace and tone your body in no time, well, less time then a conventional training routine! But working out at such high intensity requires your body to be primed and ready for action.
Your joints, muscles and lungs will be taking on so much more strain then its used to. So before your start any exercise routine, you should go through a warm up, even if your just going through the motion that your body will be taken on in the coming moments.
This routine has no particular timings or rep ranges, but be sure not to warm up too much as it may hinder you actual workout, when it comes to it.
Forward Lunges: Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Drive one leg forward, landing on the ball of your feet, while simultaneously raising your arms either side of your head and dropping your knee towards the floor. Make sure you keep your knee 2 inches from the floor.
Shoulder Rotations/Swings: Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Raise your arms in front of you, at the same time rotate your shoulders towards your ears so your biceps brush your ears. Follow the natural progression around, to finish at the start. Repeat.
