Looking to kick your cardio up a notch? This is a series about the best types of cardio for you to do--either at home, at the gym, or in a class. First up, our very favorite: HIIT training! When it comes to burning calories and fat, you can't beat HIIT training. It's estimated that 15 minutes of HIIT training can burn up to 250 calories. Compare that to 45 minutes of jogging for a total of 400 calories burned, and you can see why HIIT is the way to go.
