Metabolic Effects of HIIT

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is one of the most popular forms of fitness today. These workouts are designed to exert a maximum amount of effort in a relatively short period of time.

Ab Training is Overrated (Most of it, Anyway)

The rectus abdominis is quite an extraordinary muscle.  They are so nice to look at!!  Sooo nice!  The rectus abdominis is also known as the abs.  Ah…now I’ve got your attention.  I’ll refer the rectus abdominis to “abs” from here on out because that’s how the muscle is typically identified. The abs are indeed a pretty damn cool looking muscle.
