What is HIIT training?
HIIT – High intensity interval training is a form of cardiovascular exercise, alternating short periods of intense anaerobic bursts and less intense recovery periods. The aim is to challenge yourself to work to your near max for short bursts of time. Unlike sustained cardio, Hiit is designed to push your body as hard as you can with active or non-active rest.
Intervals can range from between 10 seconds to eight minutes of exercise. This training method is not subjected to just cardio, Some HIIT sessions use weights for short periods of time.

Plantar fasciitis is a condition of inflammation of the fascia ( a thick, fibrous band of tissue) that runs from your heel bone to your toes and supports the arch of your foot. Inflammation of the fascia can cause pain, a stabbing sensation, around the heel and arch of the foot. Overactive muscles, such as the gastrocnemius and soleus, can cause stress in the plantar fascia.
