It is never too late to add a workout routine to your daily schedule. For those who are just starting out, a long workout can seem intimidating. But thanks to fitness expert Yasmin Karachiwala, now you can indulge in some high-intensity interval training (HIIT) at home. For those who do not have long breaks in their daily schedule to dedicate to working out, HIIT is a good option as it helps you complete a full workout in just ten to fifteen minutes. In addition to helping reduce blood pressure, HIIT routines are also useful in burning calories. And Yasmin's Karachiwala curated HIIT routine is perfect if you are looking to lose some extra kilograms.
