Right now HIIT (High Intensity Interval Traning) is more popular for fat loss than LISS (Low Intensity Steady State) cardio.
HIIT is when you do short intense bursts of effort alternated with low intensity work.Click Here for my article on getting Super-Lean by Eating a High Carb Diet (Opposite of Keto).
LISS is low intensity cardio, like walking, without any bursts of intense effort.
Here’s a video which compares HIIT to LISS when it comes to fat loss.
In the 70’s through mid-90’s when people want to lose fat, they gravitated to LISS.
Then in the late 90’s HIIT began to gain traction.
This is due to the Afterburn Effect.
The calories burned after HIIT are typically higher than LISS.
I actually recommend HIIT to release fat from fat cells and LISS to use these fats for fuel.
Here’s a diagram from my cardio course:
This combo has been shown to lose fat more efficiently than HIIT or LISS on their own.
