HIIT us with your best shot

 
Just in time for Heart’s Day, here’s an approach to exercise that’ll get your ticker in tip-top shape. “With High Intensity Interval Training (HITT), you push yourself hard for one minute, then bring the intensity down for one minute, then start all over again for a 30-minute cycle,” says Olney, MD-based personal trainer Beth Novick. “The best part is, you control just how hard and how easy you want to go.”

 

Bonus: Intervals have also proven to increase endurance and blast away fat three times faster than steady cardio. Here’s a workout that’ll really get your heart racing.
