"10 Minute Solution: High Intensity Interval Training"
Short, intense bursts of exercise done with 20 seconds of all out effort followed by 10 seconds of rest, repeated in a four-minute cycle doubles a person's metabolic rate (the amount of calories burned) for 30 minutes afterwards. In fact, people following Michele Olson's workout burned more calories AFTER a four minute Tabata-style workout than it would take doing a 20 minute brisk walk.
The new "10 Minute Solution: High Intensity Interval Training" (HIIT) DVD keeps to that 20/10 format for workouts that keep working long after the workout ends. It offers five mini-workouts to challenge every part of the body while keeping that heart rate high to burn calories and build stamina. As with all the DVDs in this series, users get to design their workout of the day in 10-minute increments, whether it's just 10 minutes or the whole enchilada.
