Quality versus quantity has always worked in our favor (and this goes for many different areas in our life). Think about it, quality food is better than stuffing your face with extra food. Quality sleep is better than sleeping interrupted for hours on end. So if you can work out in just 20-minutes while executing the workout with quality, then we think you get the idea.
Since something can be full of quality, then they don’t have to be much. This is why some of the best workouts for you, can be ones that are short because they are full of quality exercises and movement for your body. The biggest takeaway you can achieve when doing a short workout is making every second count. Really push yourself through every second and think about every movement in relation to what your body has to do to move through the movement–think mind-muscle connection.
Our favorite type of short workout, with quality movements, are always HIIT workouts. (If you are looking to learn more about what HIIT is, check out our article here.) Plus, a HIIT workout is a great way to burn fat. It is a great way to burn fat because several studies have demonstrated HIIT’s ability to increase your metabolic rate for hours after exercise, increase your metabolism, and shifts your body’s metabolism toward using fat for energy instead of carbs.
