HIIT Your Run For Better Results

HIIT workouts have been a big hit on the fitness scene for several years now, and for a good reason: they work!

An acronym for High-Intensity Interval Training, HIIT consists of adding short bursts (think 30-60 seconds) of speed or intensity to your workout.

You need to be pushing your maximum effort or anaerobic threshold.
