Efficiency is the name of the game when it comes to high-intensity interval training, better known as HIIT. The training method has skyrocketed in popularity for good reason: Alternating between all-out effort and brief recovery periods has been shown to rev metabolism, improve cardiovascular endurance and get you fitter in less time. HIIT also challenges both your anaerobic and aerobic systems. Even after you’ve stopped working out, you’ll continue to burn calories thanks to EPOC, or excess post-exercise oxygen consumption.

Not sure how to build your own HIIT workout plan? DailyBurn trainer Anja Garcia has you covered with these three HIIT workouts for every exercise preference, from the treadmill to your living room to the great outdoors. Plus, each workout takes just 10 minutes flat. You’ll be thrilled how quick and convenient they are. Lose those excuses, it’s time to HIIT it!
