High Intensity Interval Training
High Intensity Interval Training, or “HIIT as it’s commonly referred to, is a short but intense full-body workout that’s usually completed in under 30 minutes. According to Men’s Health:
“For instance, you might sprint as hard as you can for 15 to 30 seconds and then walk for 45 to 60 seconds. You’d alternate between the two for a set amount of time.”
These workouts are known for delivering incredible results and are becoming increasingly popular for people looking to burn fat quickly. Some trainers don’t recommend HIIT to clients new to the gym because of the high injury rate – so be careful! There are tons of great HIIT circuits accessible for free on YouTube that are perfect for trying out at home. Try this one.
Avoid expensive gym membership fees and try something a little more primal. Bodyweight training is another 2018 workout trend that’s easy to try in your off-base apartment for rent. Its benefits include isolated muscle movement and increased flexibility. Men’s Health says:
“When you use just your bodyweight, you can work multiple muscles at once and work out wherever and whenever you want. Plus, you have countless moves to choose from, so it will never get boring.” Check out this bodyweight circuit featuring 20 different moves to try at home!
This has been trendy for a long time; but, with the influx of fitness trainer apps, free YouTube videos and websites like DoYogaWithMe.com, this discipline remains one of the hottest trends year after year. With practices ranging from vinyasa, hot yoga, hatha and even aerial, there’s no shortage of new flows to try in 2018. Plus, the benefits of yoga are far bigger than physical. Studies show people who practice yoga frequently have better mental health. All you need is a mat and the Internet to try out this trend in your off-base apartment!
