HIIT training involves alternating periods of max effort with periods of less intense effort.
It works well when done with proper intensity.
The problem is that a lot of people don’t push hard enough during the work portion.
Here’s a video showing the proper intensity of a beginner HIIT sprint workout along with an advanced HIIT workout.
What is cool about HIIT is that it creates a special fat burning window of opportunity.
Intense exercise like HIIT releases free fatty acids into the bloodstream. If you follow these intense efforts with slow cardio, you can easily burn a lot of this fat.
Here’s a chart from my cardio course which outlines this fat loss method.
If you simply do HIIT, these fatty acids will get re-deposited back into your fat stores.
So make sure and follow ALL intense exercise with walking for 10-20 minutes.
