Want to slim down and tone up? How about increase speed and power? There's one type of workout that can help you reach all of these goals at the same time: high-intensity interval training (HIIT). This workout style focuses on short, powerful bursts of activity followed by a short rest period. I use HIIT to get into the best possible shape for beach volleyball because every match requires dynamic, powerful movements that last 30 seconds or less.
You don't have to be a beach volleyball player to benefit from HIIT. Anyone can (and should) use this type of training to build lean muscle, boost resting metabolism, improve athletic performance, and tighten up every muscle in your body. I not only rely on HIIT for my sport, but I also use it to look and feel my best for photo shoots, events, and bikini season.
