5-Minute Workout That Replaces High-Intensity Cardio

We all know that High-Intensity Cardio is a fat burning powerhouse (the short intervals ask you to push yourself much harder than you would be able to if you were doing longer duration bouts of movement). Because it only lasts 20 seconds each time, you’re basically seeking out discomfort in the form of a pace that is not sustainable for much more than that short interval. However many still find it hard to go through this intense cardio workout and give-up all together.

This unsustainable, intense burst of energy output revs up the metabolism because the body does not instantly return to the normal rate of expenditure. Instead, it slowly normalizes itself over the next hours and sometimes even days (depending on the intensity of the workout). While it’s returning to normal, you get the benefit of burning calories at a higher rate than normal – even while you’re just sitting around. It’s a great example of working smarter, instead of harder, though no one is about to argue that HIIT is not difficult.

This following 7 activities which only last for 5 minutes is a good replacement for High-Intensity Cardio. Perfect for both amateurs and professionals alike. This will suit any level of physical condition because they’re all together in view of one sensational exercise, board
