    HIIT in conjunction with their normal lifting routine

    I was curious as to how many on here do HIIT in conjunction with their normal lifting routine to keep fat burning high without jeopardizing the loss of too many calories? What do you do and how often?

    No HIIT for me thanks.

    I don't fancy wasting my precious energy stores on high intensity cardio when I'm trying to build muscle. I also don't fancy wasting my depleted energy stores, when dieting, on high intensity cardio when I know that my recovery capacity is going to be hampered to begin with. In short, I think HIIT is completely ****ing stupid on every conceivable level for a bodybuilder. JMO.

    Thanks for the response. I’m trying to build more lean muscle but need more fat burning at this point where I’m at. I spent years bulking and still remain largely built but at 35 and an impracticable reason to get much bigger I choose to incorporate it. A lot of people’s goals are different. Makes sense you wouldn’t want to waste time burning an ounce of a calorie if your choice is to get bigger.

    It quickly leads me to over training.

    Zilla, as always makes good points, i use it mainly because im still trying to burn off a lot of body fat and also because of my over whelming love of cardio(hate the shit) its something that i can do in a fairly quick time frame.

    Now if youre at the point that a lot of the guys on here are at, id say go with something else.

    I do mine AFTER i do my lifting and once i get my body around the weight/bf range im shooting for, it can piss off.

    Thanks bro, but im thinking i need to use something other than the treadmill, my knees are screaming at me by the time i get home from the gym. All those years running in damn combat boots took a toll on my shins and knees i think, not to mention football and just bad behavior in general lol

    If you have your own gym turn the treadmill on at a steady waking pace. Between your lifting sets instead of resting walk on the treadmill.

    We all know compliance/persistence is what works in the long run.

    I’d compare it to intermittent fasting and 6-meal a day dieting. Both work, which one are you going to actually do?

    LISS/MISS burn calories and HIT burns calories. If the endurance portion of cardio makes you avoid it then burning the calories theout HIIT makes sense. If you’re a naturally lazy SOB like me, jumping on a treadmill and doing 30min of MISS requires a whole lot less mental work then going all out X number of times.

    how many LBS do you think you want to lose...??

    To kick things off, it may be a good idea to jumpstart your fatloss. Than after you have made some progress, move away from it.
