What is HIIT and What are the HIIT Benefits for Men

HIIT-exerciseHIIT (or High Intensity Interval Training) is a form of training that mixes quick high energy exercises with short break periods.  This type of training/exercise provides not only a highly efficient workout but greatly reduces the time spent. I know that I feel like I am always pressed for time so these have been very effective.

The key to all of these workouts is doing what you are able to do. Some will only be able to do one rep in thirty seconds, others may do 30. The overall goal is to make yourself a better dad and a better man.

At this point in my life, I am not expecting to become a bodybuilder or a strongman. I know that the more I exercise, the better I feel and the more confidence I have. It’s a great feeling to know that I can keep up with my Daughter on the soccer field or go on the play equipment with my son.
