HIIT stands for Hyper Intensity Interval Training. It is also referred to as sprint interval training (SIT) or high-intensity intermittent exercise (HIIE).

Hyper intensity interval training is defined as a system of training that includes short repeated patterns of exercise with interval (breaks) in between them.

There are certain principles that guide hyperintensity training. This involves:

They are increasing the workload at each progressive workout session. Many people engage in this type of training because it provides strength and muscle development.

If you reach a complete failure in the last repetition, you are probably not going to move to the next successive session as it may have more workload.

During training, another principle is that of your repetition with a set of the load. An example of this is: choosing a heavyweight for 9-12 repetitions for each exercise.

HIIT stands for Hyper Intensity Training, which is primarily short, intense bursts of cardio followed by a brief period of rest. This form of exercise has a very positive effect on your metabolism, heart, and lungs, even after only a few minutes. With interval training, you will often improve cardio function and stamina by doing repetitions, rounds, and sets as your body are hard at work.

High-intensity exercising is not a casual walking workout. However, you should only push just a little bit past your comfort zone to avoid any injuries. You can use HIIT with any cardio exercise. This HIIT could be running, doing the elliptical, bicycling, and swimming.
