Do you hate cardio? Cus I sure fucking do. That shit is boring and it takes forever. If only there was an alternative that would fix these issues.

Oh wait, there is an alternative, and it burns a lot more calories, a lot more fat and as fun as getting kicked in the Dick by an army of ninja parrots.

HIIt

Hiit is a form of cardio training that alternates between extreme “dicks out for harambe” exercises and less intense recovery periods. Workouts could range from a 1:1 work to rest ratio, 1:2 ratio, 1:3 ratio and so forth.

An example of a 1:1 ratio would be your bum ass performing as many kettlebell swings as you can in a minute and then walking for the following minute. That would be one set.

I’m not gonna lie, it’s painful. But just look at all the benefits this shit gives you:

1.They burn more calories and fat during and after your workout than steady state cardio aka jogging on that ball punching treadmill. And it can boost your metabolism for up to 48 hours.
2. Hiit won’t bore you to death. Say good bye to shitty cardio machines.
3. It’s a lot more time efficient. No more fucking excuses about not having time to workout. Hiit can be performed anywhere.
4. They build up your endurance. A study in 2006 found that people that spend 8 weeks doing Hiit workouts were able to bicycle twice as long as they could before the study.
5. It will build muscle. Hiit workouts stimulate the release of anabolic hormones like HGH and testosterone.
6. No equipment necessary. You don’t need shit to do an hiit workout. All you need is your imagination.

Disclaimer

Hiit workouts are not supposed to be done every day. Due to their high intensity, if done every day your weak ass could get injured or you could burn yourself out.
