High-intensity interval training (HIIT) elevates your metabolic rate long after your workout has ended. The post-workout metabolic boost is a result of excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC). The HIIT MAN Workout generates an EPOC greater than your typical cardio workout. This workout plan is designed to build lean muscle, burn calories & keep your metabolism revved long after you leave the gym. Perform the workout no more than once every 10 days, rest up to 4 minutes between exercises.
