High Intensity Interval Training, or "HIIT," is an exercise philosophy that has been proven to be one of the most efficient exercise methods to get fit, burn fat, and is also one of the best high calorie burning workouts you could possibly do! Basically, when your body moves quickly between high, moderate, and low intensity workouts, it confuses itself into working more efficiently! Benefits of HIIT workouts include a quicker metabolism (you'll burn calories hours after you've finished your workout!), a shorter time at the gym, more efficient fat-burning, AND you don't need any equipment. Sounds good to us! Read on for two incredible, butt-kicking and high calories burning workouts that'll have you feeling and looking like a summer dream in no time.

THE 60-45-20 METHOD

First up is the 60-45-20 method! This workout was designed by Daphne Yang, a master of all things HIIT, to give the body plenty of time to recover between workouts while working you out in the most efficient way possible. According to Yang, the workout "lets you sculpt the entire body while melting away fat.”

First up: burpees. Do these for 60-seconds, and then rest for 10-seconds.

THE CHISEL CLUB WORKOUT

“This workout is different from a run because instead of going at a steady pace and keeping your heart rate consistent for 30-minutes, you’ll be working through different heart-rate zones," says Lauren Williams, the founder of Chisel Club. Go through the cycle three times, and you're looking at burning between 350 and 450 calories!

First, take your planks for a walk for 45-seconds.
