HIIT training can be used with any type of exercise.
Cruise recommends working out at a very high intensity for one minute — around a 7.5 on a scale from one to 10 — then lowering the intensity for two to three minutes to catch your breath and reset your body, before taking it back up again for another minute, and repeating this cycle for a minimum of 20 minutes.
The best part about HIIT training is that it can be applied to any kind of exercise, from yoga to running to strength training.
