If you have a stationary bike, sprint hard for 20 seconds, then take 10 seconds off. Do that for 8 sets.
You can even do 30 seconds, then 90 seconds off and do that for 4-8 sets.
That mimics a hockey shift.
HIIT training also promotes weight-loss up to 48 hours after you've worked out.
Doing HIIT or Tabata with sprinting is amazing too - but extremely taxing.
Find a 400 meter track and sprint it. Then walk it, then sprint it. Do that for 4 sets.
Trust me, you'll be gassed.
What exactly is HIIT and Tabata?
