[Workout Wednesday] 15-Minute Low-Impact HIIT for Beginners
Save your joints and get fit with this low-impact HIIT workout – and it only takes 15 minutes!
As we mentioned last week, simply jumping up and down is one of the fastest ways to get your heart pumping and burn calories. However, if you have joint problems, jumping may put too much stress on your joints – especially if you are overweight.
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to get a great cardio workout without high-impact movements. For example, this 15-minute low-impact HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workout is a great way to burn fat and boost your metabolism without putting excess stress on your joints.
Whether you have joint issues or injuries, or you are simply a beginner and need to gradually improve your fitness level before taking on a more intense form of exercise, this simple beginner-friendly workout is a great way to improve your cardiovascular fitness and your overall health – without as great a risk of injury as a high-impact workout.
