This 20 minute fat burning workout for total beginners is a HIIT for seniors that includes exercises to lower blood sugar. This beginner HIIT workout consists of two sets of five exercises each done twice. With this low impact cardio workout, each exercise is done for 30 seconds followed by 30 seconds of rest. The goal is to do each 30 second exercise at a pace that is challenging for you. Feeling a little out of breath after a round is a sign that you challenged yourself.
HIIT (high intensity interval training) includes alternating periods of high and low periods of exercise. The higher intensity activities can range from 30 seconds to two minutes and followed by short periods of active rest that lower your heart rate.
Benefits of HIIT include:
✳️ Burning belly fat while maintaining muscle
✳️ Lowering blood pressure
✳️ Improving cardiovascular health
✳️ Managing insulin sensitivity (which helps the exercising muscles
use glucose for fuel to make energy)
Another added benefit is that you'll burn calories a few hours after your workout as your body uses energy to get back to its pre-exercise levels!
This is a cardio workout so drink water during breaks to stay hydrated. Also, for safety, clear the area and tape down or move rugs to the side.

OMG! I love your mom. Could she adopt me? She is such an inspiration, April, and you both make my day! 💖
Great cardio workout. Thanks a lot, ladies. I was wondering if you have some videos based on flexibility. We seniors lose it very quickly if we don’t practice. Or maybe an idea for a next video? 😉
