Move over, HIIT! LISS, or low intensity steady state, is having a moment. Swanky gyms like London’s Equinox are building classes around it, and Queen of Insta-fitness Kayla Itsines swears by it. Basically, it is about exercising at a steady pace for 40-60 minutes, and it’s the perfect way to counterbalance HIIT. In fact, research that pitted HIIT against LISS saw people get the same weight loss. It’s even better when you combine them, and it’s easy to add to your regime – walking, running, swimming, rowing, cycling, or gym equipment like a cross trainer. To do it right, you should be quite breathless, so you couldn’t easily hold a conversation, but not panting. Think a 40-minute jog that keeps your body steadily ticking, rather than sprints. It’s a more mindful way to work out, and one we can get behind wholeheartedly.
