ABS HIIT Workout. The benefits of interval training are many, including: increasing endurance, improving acceleration and speed, and burning more calories in less time. Plus, it revs up your metabolism and keeps you burning fat for hours after your workout is over. Performing core-strengthening exercises at a fast, intense pace will not only strengthen your muscles but slim your midsection. Another amazing benefit of this workout (and all workouts) is that while you move, your body will release those feel-good happiness hormones – endorphins, dopamine and serotonin – making you feel joyful and confident. HIIT workout exercise has extensive scientific research to show the incredible effect on improving brain health too - ‘Wow what can’t HITT help with’ I hear you say!
