Also, if you’re new to HIIT, you should probably know what HIIT means! HIIT stands for “high-intensity interval training,” meaning you perform a series of exercises for an allotted amount of time, and give it 100% effort for those timed seconds. Don’t feel bad if you’re struggling with this first exercise. Remember practice makes perfect!
